Yoga tips to focus better on your business
- Our breath is our life force. Slowing down the senses and concentrating on your breathing can help you make better decisions.

- Nadi Shodhana Pranayama (Channel-Cleaning Breath) and Sithali Pranayama (Cooling Breath) are also good introductions to bringing more intentionality to your breath while reaping the benefits of productivity.
- Abdominal Pranayama IV induces sound sleep and helps relieve stress.
When distractions come up during work resist the urge to Google things for example- that café’ or restaurant lookup write it down and then get back to work. It’s the same norm used during meditation. In meditation, you do not give into thoughts or give into them. You practice Dharana and Dhyana where you acknowledge their presence but allow them to pass. Similarly, at the end of your day, you let yourself come back to that list. It is a simple change, but you will be amazed at the sheer number of distractions. Upon correct reflection, you will realise so needy at the moment but after the end of that day no longer relevant. Make it a habit of jotting down daily distractions and then seeing what actually requires your attention. This exercise will help you to make better decisions and improve concentration.
