Do you ever feel like you can’t focus on anything? That no matter how hard you try, your brain can’t fixate on one thing?
I have been feeling this way the past couple of weeks. There are so many ideas in my head, and I can’t keep up with them. So many things that I want to do, and I am excited about them.
I have been writing stuff down to try and get it out of my head, but it keeps popping back up and bouncing around. So much so, that now I feel like I am forgetting things all the time.
It is happening at work and at home. My to-do lists can’t keep up with all the things that I feel need to happen. And the fun ideas take me down rabbit holes that distract me even more. And so many fun ideas are happening, but that maybe should be focused on later…
Are you able to focus? And if so, how do you do it? I would love some ideas!
I have always loved a good to-do list with checkboxes because there is almost no better feeling than seeing all those boxes checked. But lately, my lists are getting longer and not getting as many checks. They are becoming never-ending.
So, I am looking for a better way. I am trying a new tracking chart for building new habits, but it is still in the trial stages, so I am not sure if it will work.
And I am not sure that will work for everything that pops into my head.
I am finding that a side effect of this lack of focus is that I am back to having trouble getting to sleep. All those ideas bouncing around makes it hard for me to shut off my brain when trying to go to bed. My mind always goes into hyper-drive when it has the quiet time of the bedtime ritual. And while my Calm app helps, sometimes even it can’t quiet the noise. It is like I have a pinball machine in my head, and my ideas are all the balls moving through the game.
So for today, I think I am going to go stream of consciousness and just write everything down that is in my head. Then maybe, I can plan some of it out, so I don’t feel so scattered.
And for now, that is all I have. If you have some great ideas, I would love to hear them. Post them in the comments below or hit me up on Instagram or Facebook.
I hope you all have a wonderful week, and you can focus on the things that make you happy.
