Focused Attention is the practice of mindfully staying present to the moment, person, or activity in which you are engaged. Look, listen, speak, and act with full awareness, intention, and direction. Quiet your mental chatter and control your thoughts, silently calling on your Sacred Mantra in those noisy, distracted, impatient, or stressful moments. Not paying attention to a conversation? Repeat your Sacred Mantra to refocus your attention on the present moment. Focused Attention generates positive energy for your relationships, work, and even your health!
Focused Attention, or doing only one thing at a time, may feel counterintuitive for many people, where the predominant culture encourages you to think ahead, get a jump-start, fast-forward, multitask, and pass the slowpokes.
As you practice Focused Attention, you may discover more time and space in your days. Imagine how much energy evaporates when you attempt to do too much at once. That only results in doing more things less well and then maybe even having to redo them. Focused Attention and the certainty of your Sacred Mantra sustain inner peace, boost energy and awareness, and empower your true capabilities.
