As I complete my slides for the International Brainspotting Conference (Neurobiology & Research) in July 2021, I am fixated on a Venn diagram of how we use our eyes to see. The first circle is Focus, the fine tuned 20/20 vision and continuous concentration we try to use every day.
The eyes receive 1 to 10 million bits of information every second, filtered down to 50 or so manageable bites of data in our brains. In the process, we can lose our ground as we laser focus on getting our to-do lists done. You may have 20/20 vision, but not when you’re trying to do 20 things all at once.
A client this week said when her periphery is lost, she loses her perspective (beautiful!) and that is true for focus, as well. Here’s an article on how to improve your focus before you lose your mind!
Stay tuned for the next circle on the Venn diagram to your own Post-traumatic Clarity!
