If you noticed yourself becoming exhausted at work, you’re not alone. Many of us have found the constant use of our digital devices has had unintended consequences on our work life, home life, and sense of well being. Instead of focusing deeply on tasks, we constantly switch from website to website and app to app. By the end of the day, we’re exhausted. We may have been busy, but we don’t feel like we’ve gotten anything done.

To find out how we could focus better at work, I reached out to world-renowned digital analyst and anthropologist Brian Solis. Solis recently underwent his own digital epiphany when he was unable to concentrate long enough to write a new book on how businesses could design services as experiences. He saw his inability to focus as a consequence of digital innovation and found inspiration in this frustration for a new book.

In Lifescale, Solis writes how businesses and employees can get focus and energized during the workday. Here are three attention hacks he suggested to get you started.

Prioritize your tasks.

To be more focused, try to organize your tasks into blocks. More challenging tasks are best done when your brain is energized. For many of us, that time is the morning (while some do their best work at night). If you’re a morning person, set aside the morning hours to work on big projects that require hours of focus.

To make sure you can concentrate, set this time down on your calendar so people know you are working and shouldn’t be interrupted for meetings or calls. Then do less mentally demanding tasks in the afternoon, such as checking emails, data entry, or returning calls.

Work in sprints.

To improve the quality of your work, try working in sprints. The brain isn’t wired to be constantly on task. Sprints help focus your energy in small bursts, allowing you to maximize your focus, productivity, and creativity. Solis suggests starting with 25-minute bursts, which are the minimum amount of time needed to effectively focus on a task. Those with more stamina can try working up to 90 minutes before taking a break.

Take breaks.

Taking breaks goes hand in hand with working in sprints. Once you’ve concentrated solely on one task for a dedicated period of time, Solis says to take a break. The key here is to really relax. Don’t go on your phone to check notifications, look at your email, or surf the web. Constant digital distractions will only wear down your mental energy, leaving you depleted by the end of the day (and also feeding your need for more distraction).

A good break should mentally refresh you. Solis suggests going for a walk, stretching your muscles, closing your eyes, or even doing push-ups. Whatever you do, don’t use digital devices to relax. Just choose one pleasurable activity to refresh your brain. It might feel weird at first, but the overall feeling of being “off” for a few moments will carry into your next sprint.

If you use these three attention hacks, Solis says you will have a more focused mind during work and more energy by the end of the day. You might even enjoy work more. And if you want more advice on how to handle digital distractions, check out the book.
