Beginner’s Guide Mindful Learning: How to be More Focused and Productive
Are you struggling with focus and motivation when learning something new which is leading to non-productivity and procrastination?
Sound familiar? For many years I struggled with learning new skills at school, then one day I started to make real progress in languages and science. Initially, the teachers thought I was cheating so made me redo my work under close supervision, I got top marks. I went on to do research in psychology at postgraduate level and a higher diploma in history at the University of Oxford!
What was I doing differently?
I went from being totally unfocused with a short attention span to be fully focused and attentive. I achieved this by using a more holistic approach to learning that incorporated simple Mindfulness techniques that anyone can apply and it had really worked for me! Now I want to help you become a more efficient learner…
Most Mindfulness courses teach you the techniques, but not how to actively apply them to your learning routines.
Mindful Learning teaches you how to be a more focused, self-aware and motivated student or independent learner. This leads to greater productivity within your study sessions. This approach requires practice and an open mind to see results. If you are serious about meeting your goals and increasing productivity via some simple mindfulness techniques then this short beginners book is just for you!
