THE ART OF FOCUS

Do you think that the world can’t move without our help?  Of course, it can.

And so can you!

There’s a reason why we need to sign off from our devices for a while during the day or week (sleeping time doesn’t count! :)) There should also be moments we spend in silence. Our ears must rest, too.

One day without social media won’t kill you, it will actually serve you. I know it can be challenging when it’s your biz main funnel, but seriously, take a time off. I developed this bad habit to answer everybody right away, so nobody feels like waiting, but eventually, that started to consume my time more and more. There were days when my whole afternoon would be taken by messages, calls, and emails. Engaging with your community is beautiful, don’t get me wrong here, but there must be some boundaries.

If you want to keep your flow easy, you have to change what’s causing you discomfort, right? I hate tight schedules even if I’ve always been managing them well, still, that feeling of tension sucks. Multitasking is a bad choice. Sometimes it’s needed, but I tend to escape it whenever it’s possible, and so should you ๐Ÿ™‚

Since the community now can count on me answering right away, it wouldn’t be nice to just shut them off, and honestly, I don’t even want to. But some decision must be made here, so my chosen unplugged time became Sunday. That’s when everybody gets quiet anyway, so I have several hours off. Even if an order or question comes through, a longer conversation still can be pushed to Monday. 

The other time when being unplugged serves me well is when an important task needs to be done. I like to give full attention to what I’m doing. That way I accomplish more in less time. That’s where my cup of tea taught me to focus better. I brew some nice smelling blend and once I sit, sip a bit, my brain is zoomed to the task completely. What used to take me an hour, now is done within half of that time. Focus is a great time manager! So if you’re not that good at organization, just make a simple to-do list and put your attention on one thing at a time. Which one to do first? Well, sort them by priority, simple as that. 

Try it out, remove the distractions as much as you can, if not completely, and practice the art of centering attention.

One more thing – simplify, simplify, and simplify! We tend to engage in complicated actions because that makes us feel like we do more, but Oh, boy, we are so wrong there. Complicating things is a waste of energy, and what we’re looking for is to fuel it. Right?

We all have private and professional responsibilities and things we want to do. Handling home, friends, work, personal time (hobbies and interests), relationship/marriage, family… There’s a lot going on in this fast-paced environment called Earth ๐Ÿ™‚ And I think it’s great, as long as we don’t make it FEEL like responsibility, but JOY and EASE. Things are supposed to be easy, well it’s up to us to make it so. Planning your day ahead (keeping a schedule or making a morning plan for the rest of the day – whatever works for you), removing destructions when it’s time for a specific task, focusing, and simplifying are key elements for great daily accomplishments.

From the Black Rabbit Tea collection, there was a limited edition of Black Rose tea that was my favorite go-to for sharp focus in the morning. Black Assam tea, rose petals, clove, and cinnamon combination that smells like the best cookie in town! ๐Ÿ˜€ This blend is currently out of stock (it ran out faster than I thought it would) but hoping to restock it and give another round of sparkles to the world.
