This picture is everything! #Focus is so important... it lets us see things differently, uncover ah-ha moments, completely engage in what is at hand, prioritize the present, problem solve efficiently, think clearly... list goes on and on.
Focus is the key to #success, the key to doing your #best, the key in working through #problems, and really #understanding & #discovering new concepts & ideas.
So how do we work on #DEVELOPfocus? We work on it! We limit distractions. We work on doing one ‘task’ completely and on its own entirely. We work on playing in one area until we feel ‘done’. We work on completing goal oriented tasks- even when we eat, we ONLY eat/socialize at the table & when we are completely done eating, we then get up and decide where we’d like to explore & what we’d like to do next.
In a world of technology & constant distractions, let’s start developing focus by turning off the tv & phones before we sit down to eat (whether it be at a table or sofa). Let’s #readreadread every night. Let’s put away the phone when we’re out shopping & have your child engage in shopping with you. In the car, let’s listen to music & look out the car window... let’s do one thing at a time & really allow us to focus on what that one thing offers us (even the really mundane!). ________________
How do you work on developing focus with your kids? Was it something that you considered “developing” and “working on” in the past?
