Follow along with your finger or a pen. After a few chapters, increase the audio to 2 – 2.5 times faster for 15 minutes at a time. (It’s just like sprinting.) Then, reduce the speed again.
This method forces your brain to concentrate and pick up critical information. It also helps you to get super focused as you’re using 2 senses at the same time.
#1-Meditation Is The Ultimate Example Of Mindfulness
Meditation helps you both in your professional and personal life. Because we are continually bombarded with messages, it can be hard to learn at first. Try this:
Sit on the edge of a relaxing chair or sofa. Close your eyes and take 100 deep breaths by breathing in through the nose and out through the mouth. Count each breath in your head. This should take about 10 minutes.
This is harder than it seems. You’ll want to rush through it. It can even cause some anxiety. It’s important to be consistent.
