  1. Relax before work

Relaxing before work can be a great way to get ready to everything at work without even thinking about it. Forget all tasks and free your mind for the meantime. What you can do is have a walk in the park, eat your favourite ice cream, watch an episode of your favourite programme, or read that book you’ve been desperately wanting to read for quite some time now. Relaxing is preparing yourself so when you start working you can focus and feel recharged.

  1. Make a to-do list

Making a to-do list can help you prioritize what you need to do as soon as you start work and things that could wait until after lunch, do a to-do list for the whole week Monday then put the list in front of you so that you can always see it but don’t put it in a spot where you will constantly want to look at it and get distracted.

  1. Organise you work space

Organising your work space means that your attention is kept on your work and not to the clutter on the table. An organized area is also an organized mind. Some people do work well around clutter and what you may think is clutter could be someone else’s organization.

  1. Make certain time to do certain pieces of work

Making certain times to do certain pieces of work will help you concentrate because scheduling it and sticking to the schedule will help you focus and you will know what you have to do next and you won’t have to worry about missing anything out and then getting in trouble for not doing that one piece of work you completely forgot about.

  1. Listen to calming music

Calming music is a very effective approach in concentrating. While working put on some calming music, this It creates a soothing impact to the brain, draining the disturbances, and enables you to concentrate.

  1. Take a break

If you are in the middle of a difficult situation and you feel your head is a bit aching already, pause for a while. An aching head is a signal that there might be too much information passing the brain which might be disorienting you.

  1. Do one task at a time

Doing one task at a time means that you won’t get confused with what work you are doing and that way you won’t end up with work that is all wrong.

  1. Make check lists of things that have been done.

Making check list is comforting you will see everything you have done and know you don’t have to do it again.  This give you more room for focus and no room for worries. Take time to create a checklist and update it each time you finish as task.
