How to Stay Focused while Coding

How to Stay Focused while Coding

Thinking, writing, and testing your code requires tremendous focus. Without focus, the day will pass by without you accomplishing anything. Whether you’re working in a typical corporate setting or working freelance at home, concentration is a struggle.


Focus opens your mind to let those creative juices flow continuously. But how do you do it?


Sleep It Off

When all else fails, just sleep. Lack of sleep causes a person to become disoriented, irritable, and confused. So the next time your code doesn’t work for the hundredth time, you know what to do. But what if it happens at the office? Of course, sleeping at your desk is against your office policies. What you can do instead is to remind yourself to go home right away after shift and hit the sack earlier. You’ll wake up refreshed and ready to take on the new day.


Nurture Your Body

Our brain needs the right nutrients in order to function well. Much like a car needing fuel, our brain and body also needs fuel to fully operate. Brain foods include spinach, walnuts, broccoli, salmon, blueberries, and eggs. You don’t need to hire a nutritionist in order eat healthy but if you can afford one, that’d be helpful for your diet as well. Additionally, do not go to work on an empty stomach.


Do One Thing At A Time

Companies often treat people like they’re robots. They focus more on deliverables and efficiency at a tight deadline without human regard. Multitasking can not only compromise the quality of your work but also your brain health. Sure, employers might think that multitasking is a special skill, but that not ought to be if you want to focus on producing an excellent output.


Let Go Of Perfectionism

Over-planning will mentally and emotionally cripple you. Of course, you don’t have to YOLO (You Only Live Once) your work, however, balance is key to accomplishing. In order to do that, you only have to think about one small thing you want to accomplish in the moment and don’t bother analyzing too much on what happens next. As the idiom goes, “We’ll cross the bridge when we get there”. You can still be your perfectionist self, but if you want to focus on getting the work done, it’s best to let go of worries that distract you. First know where you’re headed then take it from there. Let go of the need to over-analyze things that hasn’t happened yet because chances are, they’re never going to happen anyway.
