Focus


Rob introduced me to a great feature on Google Chrome this week. A time mangement tool, each time you try to open a new browser tab, the image above appears..."What is your main focus today?" with a blinking line below for you to ponder and input your answer.

While I certainly could use this to input my one big work task each day, I instead have been using it for very clear and simple reminders of how I wish to be. Over the last few days, here is what I have typed.

What is Your Main Focus Today?

  • Slow Breathing

  • Gratitude for life's challenges

  • Non-judgement

  • Patience

  • Trusting that I can have it all

I always stay on the screen for a moment before I start my work search. Reading the words, I give myself a moment to clear my head and concentrate on how I wish to engage in my work. Maybe next week I will start adding in a work action item in parentheses: Save the World (& finish my evaluation template) .

Breathing

Alternate Nostril Breathing (Nadi Shodhan Pranayama)

Assists in relaxation & clearing your mind

  • Complete a well-rounded warm-up with emphasis on the spine (i.e. cat/cow, Sun Salutation).

  • Sit comfortably on the floor, your bed or couch.

  • Soften your eyes and take a few easy rounds of breath.

  • Hold your right hand with your palm in front of your face, and fold down your pointer and middle fingers.

  • Before you inhale, use your thumb to hold your right nostril closed.

  • Hold onto that breath, then release the right nostril and use your ring finger to hold your left nostril closed as you exhale.

  • Inhale while still holding the left nostril closed, then switch nostrils to exhale.

  • Repeat this cycle for a couple of minutes.
