Day 76

This is a lesson from Wednesday March 17th, 2021.

What bothers me is that my mom is convinced that she is able to accomplish more by doing some many things at once. But I disagree. I rather like to focus on one thing at a time. Like she would be reading the newspaper while watching TV, or she would paint her nails while she watches her shows. To me, I like things to be simple. So I like to do one thing at a time.

I feel like if we don’t focus on just one thing at a time, we no longer stay in the moment of what we are actually doing. To me, multi-tasking is a lie. I feel like the more we spend time doing more than one thing, than we aren’t being mindful. And then because you weren’t focusing on the task at hand, you think, did I do this? Did I remember to lock the door?

When you are working on a task, you should just pour your passion and stamina into that task. Don’t let anything else lose your concentration, or distract you from what you are working on.

Today, I will only work on one task at a time. It is important for our brains to focus on one task at a time. If we multitask than we not only jumble our thoughts and emotions, but we also lose our ability to mindful about the task at hand.

Day Eight

Today I was reminded of an important lesson, to take things one thing, and one day at a day. It is easy to feel overwhelm by things. I feel a bit behind with my blog posts. But what I like to do, is to prioritize the next thing that needs to be done, and solely focus on that task at hand. Then once that is done, you can take a small break, or save it until after the next task.

It’s important to realize that you shouldn’t have to overwhelm yourself. Instead take a different approach, and single task things, by taking one thing at a time.

I used to be like my mom and multi-tasked a lot because I saw that she would always do that. But now, I am happy that I only single task things. I feel so much better. I am able to think more clearly. I have been trying to convince my mom to practice this trait, but she hasn’t gotten on board yet.

Today, I will learn to take things slowly, and try to focus on one task at a time. I know that there are only 24 hours in a day, and I should only focus on those 24 hours. Learn to take things one day, and don’t let tomorrow’s stresses ruin your today.
