Focusing

I have found that one of my challenges during this time is keeping my focus. My mind wanders and, at times, cannot hold its attention for very long. It’s not like I busy myself with distractions, rather at various times in the day, I find it challenging to keep my attention on something I want to do (a work project, cleaning the house, cooking, working in the yard). When this happens, I do my best to bring my attention back. I also give myself space. I know we are in a time of uncertainty and transition and that some of my energy is focusing on that. That’s okay. I am finding my new center and until I do, I go easy on myself, to a point.

How is your focus these days?
