Do you find it realty hard to concentrate at work?
Do you also find yourself wondering “what are Julie and Mark are talking about over there,”
“does that plant need to be watered” or “has anyone liked my new profile pic?”
Well, according to new research it’s this ‘visual noise’ that’s to blame for your lack of focus at the office. Anything that distracts you visually can interfere with your “analytical thinking, creativity, and ability to concentrate.” So, if your coworkers are chatting in a group nearby or your phone is sitting out your mind is going to wander.
Basically if you work in an open concept environment everything and everyone else is to blame for your lack of concentration but you!
