On Today’s Show

We’re counting down the top 10 episodes of 2016 on the 1 Simple Thing podcast. Today is number 3 on the list. Episode 371: Develop Jedi Focus. We hope you enjoy it and Happy New Year!

Studies show that meditation makes you healthier, makes your relationships better, and makes you calmer and more focused. Sir John Hargrave teaches a concentration hack to strengthen that “top-down” attention to make ourselves better able to stay focused on the things we want, like our tasks at work. It also helps us resist those “bottom-up” interruptions like random thoughts and text messages that jump out at us constantly.

1 Simple Thing Action

Practice John’s “Jedi Concentration Exercises.” Spend 15-20 minutes in the morning and keep your concentration focused on your breath. When you notice your mind wandering, award yourself a point. Instead of getting down on yourself when you lose focus, make a game out of it and reward yourself whenever you realize your mind is wandering, and you return your attention back to your breath. These exercises are super effective at helping you develop a regular mindfulness or concentration practice.
