How to Push Through Mental Fog for More Productivity

By Genevieve Cunningham

We all have those times when we just can't pay attention. Maybe we're supposed to be working or listening in a meeting, but we just can't get our act together. Sound familiar? Everyone has these moments of mental fog. When they happen every once in a while, it's not really a big deal. We can take a break, regroup, and start again. But what happens when you have more mental fog moments than you do moments of clarity? If this is the case, your productivity is likely suffering in a big way! So what can you do? If you need help pushing through the fog and improving productivity, take a look at these tips to help you out. 

Make a List

Sometimes all we need is a little help setting priorities. Literally get out a piece of paper and a pencil and make a list of things to do. Put the most urgent thing at the top, and then complete your list accordingly. Then tackle one thing at a time. This helps you set priorities, and it also eliminates the problem of multi-tasking -- which usually does more harm than good.

Put Away Your Crutches

We all have things that we turn to when we want to procrastinate. And when we already have brain fog, these little crutches are especially dangerous. If it's your phone, put it in your bag or across the room. If it's social media, close the apps -- or even better, completely log off. If it's mindless internet browsing, close your browser. If you don't put away these little crutches that enable your bad habits, you'll never improve your focus or get anything done.

Remove Yourself

Sometimes you have to get up and remove yourself from the situation. If you can't focus at work, get out of your office for a few minutes. If you can't focus at home, walk outside for a bit. Change the scenery. Look at something besides a blank screen or the same work that you just can't focus on. This is a small thing that can make a big difference in completing tasks.

Sometimes it's just hard to find focus. We can't have our switch turned on all the time, and that's OK. But sometimes we have to learn to push through that fog and be productive anyway. Give these methods a try, and you may find more focus and productivity than ever before.
