Shoulders and Arms and Ab Ripper X, and the Importance of Focus

Good morning! This morning's workout was Shoulders and Arms and Ab Ripper X - for some reason I struggled a bit with Ab Ripper X, but I got through it.

I've also been thinking a bit lately about the importance of focus - in this day and age, there's way too much emphasis put on multi-tasking - everyone wants everything else to be able to do everything, when the fact is that the human brain can only handle so many things at one time and still be effective. I've found the key to accomplishing any goal is to block everything else out and just focus on what you're doing at the present moment, whether it's working out, reading, or whatever. There are different ways you can do that - if you're on your computer, there's a program called FocusMe that you can download a set a timer for the specific length of time you want to focus on whatever you're focusing on. You can choose to block certain sites and applications, or only be able to access certain sites and applications during your focus session. If you're not doing something on your computer, such as if you're reading a physical book, you can set a timer on your phone, or another physical timer for a specific length of time you want to focus on something. Or you can set a goal to read so many chapters a day.

That's it for today, I hope everyone has a great Thursday! If you have any ideas to share on how you focus, I'd love to hear them!
