Sustained attention is one of our executive function skills that enable us to remain focused on a situation or a task in spite of fatigue, distraction or boredom. It enables us to work efficiently and increase our learning potential. Challenges with sustained attention can lead to work or tasks being completed late (or not at all), frustration and feeling overwhelmed. Improving your sustained attention can help you reduce these feelings and regain control of your work and home tasks.
Executive functions are a set of skills that allow us to direct our focus to plan, start, remember, and continue tasks: inhibition, cognitive flexibility and working memory.
This video takes a practical approach to boost your sustained attention, demonstrating that these skills are critical to being effective and succeeding both at work and at home.
