Good afternoon everyone!
I had some thoughts on real change in my life and wanted to see if it might help you too.
God’s Word tells us to be transformed by the renewing of our minds… right? So, how does that work? I have been talking with a number of people recently who have a hard time focusing and getting things done. I have found myself mindlessly wandering through social media and then wondering why I hadn’t gotten anything done.
I read some stuff on motivation and how neurologically if we count down from 5-1 and get up and go, we are tons more likely to get up and go(Robbins, 2017). So I tried it on focus or refocusing my mind on the tasks at hand.
I have to tell you that I have started counting down from three to one anytime I feel my mind wondering and then saying the words – I’m back! It works! I find myself refocused on the task and as I have worked on this through the course of the day, and continued this count down, I find myself wandering less and doing more.
In my estimation, this is an example of renewing the mind by helping it to refocus and on the task at hand.
SO do you want a short mind hack for the day… “3, 2, 1 – I’m back” – it works if you work it!
Have a great day and I’ll have more tomorrow!
