How To Focus At Home 2020

How To Focus At Home 2020

No matter how old you are, whether you’re a student, freelancer or in full time employment, we all struggle with getting things done from time to time. To help you out, we have put together our top 5 tips for those who are finding it difficult to get into the flow, those who feel that they’re not being productive.

1. Breathe

Before starting, take a few seconds to get your mind in the right mindset. Personally, before doing brain-work, I like to run or do some exercise. This means that by the time I start working/studying, I have ironed out all the kinks in my body and have lots of oxygenated blood running to my brain.

2. Stimulating Smells

There are a few types of aromas that have been proven to help you focus, for example, peppermint and rosemary. You may choose to have a plant near your workspace, burn the essential oil or make a cup of peppermint tea. According to research, peppermint can increase your concentration by 8 percent. Pep me up peppermint!

3. Chew

It sounds strange that we’re recommending chewing gum, but it has a double-whammy positive effect on your concentration. The mint perks you up and the chewing action ensures that you’re breathing properly. Often when we’re on the computer we do automatic, shallow surface breathing, which means we’re not getting as much oxygen around our bodies as we could

4. Switch off your phone

Clear your workspace and remove all distractions. Turn your phone off or put it in another room. You’re only cheating yourself by using it. You can use your phone during the breaks. Whatever message comes, it’s probably not going to be so urgent that it can’t wait 25min.

5. Concentrate in bursts

The Pomodoro Technique involves concentrating as much as you can for 25 min (it’s very achievable). Then, when your 5 break time comes around, step away from your desk and do something else, somewhere else. If you stay on your laptop doing internet shopping your brain will not register it as a real break.

Die Alptraumwelt der Bandenjagd

Die Alptraumwelt der Bandenjagd

More than 10,000 people worldwide claim they’re the victims of a vast organized surveillance effort designed to ruin their lives, a phenomenon known as “gang stalking.” Mental health experts see gang stalking as a symptom of paranoia, but the self-identified victims who insist what they’re experiencing is real have come together online and in support groups to share their stories. VICE met up with a handful of Americans who claim their lives have been derailed by gang stalking to understand what serious consequences the phenomenon presents. Then we hear from Dr. Josh Bazell, one of many physicians who believes the victims of gang stalking are experiencing dangerous delusions that could be treated by mental health professionals.

Wie wird man das gefälschte Restaurant Nr. 1 von TripAdvisor?

Wie wird man das gefälschte Restaurant Nr. 1 von TripAdvisor?

The Shed at Dulwich war das meist bewertete Restaurant in London. Feinschmecker, Prominente und Blogger versuchten, einen Tisch zu bekommen. Das Haupthindernis für sie war jedoch, dass es nicht existierte. Im Laufe von 8 Monaten nutzte Oobah Butler von VICE einen Angriff auf gefälschte Bewertungen, um sein “Restaurant” an die heilige Spitze von TripAdvisor zu bringen. Mit seinem ständig klingelnden Telefon, PR-Agenturen, die betteln, es zu repräsentieren, und TV-Crews, die Shows zeigen, entschied Oobah, er habe keine andere Wahl, als nur für eine Nacht seine Türen zu öffnen. Hier ist Oobahs Reise in eine falsche Realität, die die Aufmerksamkeit der Welt erregte.
