Brain Care Basics

When was the last time you thought about how your brain is functioning? Are you on overload? Having trouble focusing?  Perhaps it’s time for some brain care basics.  Dr. Hallowell addresses the importance of taking care of your brain with Jessica McCabe, How to ADD Host, in this week’s Distraction podcast.  LISTEN NOW for tips on the different things you should be doing to ensure your body and mind are at peak performance.

3 Tips on Achieving Focus:

1. Take A Break.  When you start to glaze over or feel frantic, stop what you are doing.  Stand up, walk around, get a glass of water, and stretch.  Just 60 seconds can do the trick.

2.    Take Your Time.  It’s one of truest rules of modern life is: If you don’t take your time, someone or something else will take it from you.  Guard your time jealously.  It is your most prized possession at work.  Do not give it away easily or let someone regulate it for you, unless you have absolutely to do so.

3. Close Your Eyes.  When you are losing focus or feeling confused, the simple act of sitting back in your chair and closing your eyes can, oddly enough, allow you to see clearly.  It can restore focus and provide a new direction.
