Finding Your Focus Mid-Day in 8 Minutes

Whether you work from home, are a full-time, stay-at-home parent, or spend your days in a crowded office – we all find ourselves focus-impaired sometimes.

The combination of our natural inclinations to multitask, paired with our high levels of overstimulation leads to reactive behaviors and not being as focused as we would like – both during tasks and in our lives.

This short 8-minute practice, an iteration of a focused attention meditation, invites you to draw your attention inward, bringing the attention to the breath, and recentering – so you can go into your next meeting, or task with clarity and focus.
