3 Surprising Ways To Improve Your Focus, According To Science.
Want to improve your focus? Here’s what the research says you should do.
If you’ve ever struggled with distractions in the office, you aren’t alone.
According to Salary.com, over 25% of Americans struggle to concentrate at work, too.
And worse still, an inability to concentrate is linked to anxiety, depression, and short-term memory challenges.
But it doesn't have to be a problem for you. That's because new scientific research reveals exactly how to improve your focus.
1. Use This Scientifically-Proven Ideal Office Temperature
Did you know that mistakes at work can increase by up to 44% because the office is too cold?
In 2004, Professor Alan Hedge PhD, CPE identified how office temperature affects performance. He discovered that if the temperature is too cold (68ºF), we make more mistakes.
But if the room temperature is optimal (77ºF), those excess mistakes disappear.
The solution is simple - adjust your thermostat and see how much easier your work becomes.
2. Hide This One Thing In Another Room To Improve Your Cognitive Function
Research from Dr. Adrian Ward at the University of Texas has revealed a shocking fact:
The mere presence of smartphones reduces available cognitive capability.
Dr. Ward’s research revealed that when your smart phone is visible:
- Your working memory capacity can drop by as much as 10%
- Your fluid intelligence drop by around 8%
It doesn't matter if your phone is face up or face down. If it's visible, it's impairing your ability to concentrate.
The solution? According to Dr. Ward, you want to put your phone into another room. And if that’s not possible, put it into your bag
3. Stop Doing This At Work (Even If Everyone Else Does It)
The American Psychological Association has identified a common office activity that is destroying your productivity by as much as 40%.
Over the course of a year, this could be costing you as many of 100 days of productivity.
So what’s the name of this productivity destroying activity? Multi-tasking.
And it's not only a question of productivity. It's mental health, too. Multi-tasking has been linked to symptoms of stress, depression, and social anxiety.
So if you’re a habitual multi-tacker, begin by focusing on one task at a time. Professors Baumeister and Masicampo from Wake Forest University suggest planning out each daily task in detail.
According to their research, we can reduce anxiety by having a plan for tasks we need to complete. In turn, our available cognitive capability increases, helping us to focus.
Do You Want To Boost Your Focus And Productivity?
If so, read this incredible story about Ben D.'s career transformation.
A military veteran from Florida, Ben was struggling to focus in his new role as a software engineer.
He was exhausted. He was stressed out. And worst of all, he found it impossible to be productive.
With his future on the line, Ben was prepared to try everything.
He tried all the “popular” supplements that he’d seen advertised on big podcasts and through Instagram Influencers, but found he simply wasn’t responsive.
Military Veteran Becomes High Performing Software Engineer
But these days, Ben feels quite the opposite. He's energized, focused, and productive.
And best of all, he's thriving in his role.
The difference? NEXUS™:
“My personal reason for taking Nexus is for job performance. It helps me feel more energetic and gives me the ability to focus. So it's basically a stimulant but way better than coffee. No jitters and it really enhances my performance.
For some reason taking choline and aniracetam from other suppliers doesn't help me nearly as much as Nexus does. Maybe it's the other two ingredients or I am getting snake oil. Other individual nootropics and blends don't do what NEXUS™ does for me.”
And Ben’s just getting started.
What Other People Say About NEXUS™
“To help with dissertation writing, I've tried smart drugs on top of good diet, exercise, and plenty of rest. I've tried Ritalin, Adderall, Provigil, nicotine, *lots* of caffeine, and now NEXUS. NEXUS wins."
Robert Ness, Statistician - Systems Biology
"I have chronic toxin build-up, and I'm constantly looking for ways to help my detox pathways work better. NEXUS and MITOGEN have been amazing for both my mental and physical stamina."
Laura Styler, Diagnosed in 2011 with MTHFR
"NEXUS is great. I felt clear-headed, motivated, not at all wired, and went on like that for hours. In my work, the ability to drop into ‘the Zone’ like that is gold."
Ben Pomeroy, Digital Media Director
“Nexus has been part of my daily routine now for about 6 months and I LOVE IT. I have cut down on my caffeine intake to only a cup a day (I was nearing 5-6 before) and not only do I feel much better, but I'm staying on top of my workload with ease. Thank you, Axon Labs!”
Ronin, 3rd party verified NEXUS™ customer
“I've tried many nootropics and this blend is one of a select few where I've noticed a meaningful effect. It has given me calm, sustained focus many days without any noticeable side effects."
Ben D, 3rd party verified NEXUS™ customer
“I have been using Nexus every morning for the last few months and the impact has been noticeable and sustainable. You will feel the mental clarity in addition to an unintended side effect which it controls hunger pangs that allows me to easily hit my 16 hour intermittent fasting regimen. Cost benefit ratio is worth it in my opinion”
Mark P, 3rd party verified NEXUS™ customer
“At last, a lab that believes in and promotes nootropics and their results. I am a facilities manager running about thirty properties, with a high demand to be able to jump from problem to problem and I am up at 5am and work until around 5pm.I believe in the science of assisting the mind, and I'm grateful for Axon Labs for coming to the forefront in an industry full of snake oil.”
Steve H, facilities manager for multiple properties
