Focus on one thing at a time
We tend to lose a sense of mindfulness when we’re worried about all the things we have to get done. We spend so much time in our heads about this that we’re not paying any attention to the activity that we’re currently doing. You might think it’s useful to think ahead about what you have to do (which is important), but by doing this you’re losing the ability you have to give your all your effort to the task at-hand. A way to solve this is to write down all the tasks you have to do and then do every single one with your undivided attention. By doing this, you’re aware of what you need to get done, but you’re also not neglecting the effort you can put into your current task.
