I don't know about you, but with my phone, computer, emails, social media, text messages, etc., I find myself having trouble focusing on one thing. I start doing one task but then get a notification on my phone and start thinking about something else entirely. This happens both at work and at home. I could be vacuuming, but then I remember I should really clean my bathroom, and then I'm trying to do two chores at once. It can feel like I have a million things going on at once, and it can be so damn frustrating.
However, I recently found out there's one trick I haven't tried yet to stay focused: meditation. The act of meditating has a lot of benefits: It can reduce stress and anxiety, help you take control of negative emotions or feelings, help you stay in the present, keep you calm, and improve your focus and concentration. While all of these benefits sound like wins in my book, the last one is especially appealing to me.
