5 Ways To Improve Your Psychological And Cognitive Functioning
The ever-increasing number of distractions may make it more and more challenging to stay focused on school/work. Together with the urge to catch up with everything that's going on it can really be tough to stay productive. VOS is here to help you with that. \n Maybe you often feel like having to read the latest news, watch the hottest cooking reel, or listen to the newest lifestyle podcast. And your tasks keep on waiting. By trying to catch up with everything – social media news, school, or work – we often forget to focus on what's important or press the pause button. And productivity drops down as a result. VOS is here to show you how to stay sharp and when to take a break. You'll learn to plan your agenda to limit stress and stay efficient with your tasks. Those are the productivity tools to assist you.
Breathe the Focus In
Your attention is like a muscle that you can train. Mindful breathing is a great method to get your focus in shape. By concentrating on one single activity, you'll strengthen your mind's ability to pay attention to something you need it to. Plus, breathing lets your mind restore energy for upcoming tasks. If you're not sure how to time your inhales and exhales, let VOS be your breathing coach. In the Wellbeing Hub, go to Breathing and pick any exercise you like and let the air flow in.
Sharpen Your Mind
Meditation is a powerful method in your productivity toolbox. It helps you train the ability to be truly “here and now” and develop razor-sharp attention.
