Neuroscience Expert Shares Tips to Reduce Stress, Improve Mental Clarity & Beat Distraction So You Can Focus at Work -Solutions & Advice for the American Workforce-Whether you work at home or in an office, it’s easy to get distracted. Our phones, computers, TVs, family, friends, and coworkers have always been barriers to productivity...And in the age of COVID-19, it's even more difficult to concentrate. According to a recent survey, 59% of people said they now can’t use shared spaces in their workplace without fear. Parents working at home now have the added distraction of supervising and teaching their kids 24/7 and even those without children are having trouble focusing; 64% of respondents shared they aren’t as productive because of pandemic-related stress and anxiety. Screen Shot 2020-08-03 at 12.16.03 PM.pngAccording to Neuroscience expert Dr. Patrick Porter, mental clarity is crucial for productivity.  "Increased stress and anxiety surrounding COVID-19 has understandably caused work productivity to plummet because your emotional state is directly connected to your ability to focus..."...says Dr. Porter, who has devoted his career to researching the brain and mental wellness. According to Dr. Porter, stress, anxiety, and fear elevate cortisol levels in the brain which interferes with memory making it impossible to concentrate on your work. Not only is this bad for employees who are stressed out and scrambling to make ends meet with growing to do lists - it is also bad for entire corporations and businesses as the decrease in productivity significantly impacts a company's bottom line. "Luckily, there are strategies you can do to improve mental clarity and reduce stress so you can beat distraction and focus..."...says Dr. Porter. One productivity-boosting strategy he recommends is to take a "time-out" every 75 to 90 minutes. While it may sound counterintuitive, many studies have shown a link between taking breaks and increased productivity. Stepping away from work for 10-15 minutes resets your brain, allows your mind to relax, and gets you in a clear headspace. Dr. Porter is also an advocate of restorative activities like exercising and meditating - both of which increase your ability to focus on tasks and remember information. Dr. Porter is sharing productivity-boosting tips for the American workforce. He has brain-based strategies and actionable advice people can use to reduce stress, beat distraction, and increase mental clarity, and focus.  TALKING POINTS (FOR INTERVIEWS & ARTICLES):How to Focus in the Office Amid COVID Anxiety & StressTips to Improve Mental Clarity & Focus While Working at Home (& Distracted by Kids)Strategies to Survive Working From Home With Children How to Reframe Anxiety & Channel It Into Motivation & ProductivityFascinating Science Behind Stress, The Brain, & Productivity7 Ways to Stay Productive When You're StressedHow Sleep Impacts Productivity at WorkProductivity & The Pandemic: The Mental Health Impact of COVID-19 on Business & WorkHow Managers and Employers Can Help Their Team Stay Focused ABOUT DR.
