Train Your Mind to Stay on Task

Improve your ability to focus on tasks and reduce stress, by practicing mediation. A study of human resource managers found those who had been trained to meditate:

  • Spent more time on tasks.
  • Switched tasks less often.
  • Completed their tasks as fast as multitaskers.
  • Reported less stress.

Another group that learned body relaxation techniques did not have any of those benefits. Researcher David Levy at the University of Washington said that meditation is like going to a gym and “strengthens your attention muscle.”
