Here are 4 really quick games to help you change channels in your brain and return your focus to the task at hand.

  • Pick up an object, any object. Describe it in detail. (Color, texture, size, weight, scent, etc.)
  • Count 1 to 100, saying buzz for every multiple of 7. That’s 1,2,3,4,5,6,buzz,8,9,10,11,12,13,buzz and so on. If you have a partner, it is even more fun, especially with kids, because there will be laughter — good for the soul.
  • Spell your name backwards. To make it even more interesting, spell the names of three other people backwards, too.
  • Think of an object. Now draw it in your mind, or in the air with your finger. In detail.

Do more like this — it’s fun!

Vidya’s Thursday Tip

When you face a challenge or want to appreciate a moment of joy, it helps to take an intentional pause.

Do this:

Pause: stop what you are doing.

Breathe: take slow deep breaths.

Observe: your body’s sensations, thoughts, emotions.

Name: what you observed. No explanations.

Proceed: carry on with your day.

Repeat this process as often as you need.

You will feel calmer and be more present in the moment.

Read for a dose of inspiration: Focus on yourself
