Ways To Focus Through Better Organisation

If you think you have a mild case ADD/ADHD (without a clinical diagnosis) then this article from GetButtonedUp.com may change your opinion. We are a apparently a little over liberal with the labeling of ADD/ADHD and this opinion leads on from the professional insight of neuropsychologist, Dr Jerome Schwarts of Harvard Medical School. He states that “ADHD is a clearly diagnosable neuro-biological disorder, which is characterized by developmentally inappropriate impulsivity and inattention and occurs in about 4.4% of adults.” So for the rest of us, the chances are that we need to better organize ourselves and this is relatively easily achieved when you go back to basics. Here are a few ways to focus through better organisation:

The brain is an organ that controls focus, thinking, and pretty much literally everything else that you do or feel. Everything. But just like all of our other organs, to function properly and efficiently it requires some very basic things: sleep, exercise, hydration, and a healthy diet. Surprised? We didn’t think so.

Somewhere the message gets lost in translation. If you are having trouble focusing ask yourself if you’re treating it as one: Have I eaten today? Did I sleep well last night? When was the last time I exercised? Am I eating in a way that promotes or diminishes focus? If the answer to any of these questions is no (with most of us, at least one will be) then perhaps it’s time to organize your life in an effort to focus better.

I think for the majority of us, these ways to focus through better organisation are sound advice. I have at times wondered whether I have ADD and had it been a condition when I was at school, then I’d have been diagnosed with it. Many of my school reports would say I had a concentration span of 5 minutes and I could never concentrate on my homework – except for one subject, music. I struggled through two degrees which I believe now, weren’t inline with my true strengths. Could it therefore simply be, that you can focus easily on whatever interests you, and will naturally struggle when attempting to focus on subjects that are not of interest, or not inline with your strengths? What do you think?
