|See how Emily uses FOCI’s Focus Boost to find balance and focus, in the face of challenges on her new job.|
Emily is a newcomer, who has just entered the workplace. Compared to the flexible schedule at school, the fast-paced workplace, and the highly competitive environment makes it difficult for her to adapt. Time, always seems to be insufficient. The overtime alone is a nightmare. More and more deadlines on her to-do list are getting closer, fueling her anxiety. Although she wants tostart strong every morning, she feels distractible once she gets to the office. She feels it’s difficult to focus, and her work productivity isn't improving. She feels her brain is often in a state of chaos. "I haven't done much every day, but I always feel very drained”, this is Emily's description of her current situation.
However, the up or out policy in her workplace means that she faces elimination if she doesn't evolve. She has been trying to find ways to get in a more focused state and to make her work more productive. To this end, she tried a meditation course, but it was difficult to find the intuition, and she couldn't get meaningful feedback. In the end, it came to nothing.
What surprised Emily was FOCI's biofeedback training. This kind of visual and auditory active guidance and timely feedback helps her quickly calm down from an anxious state, and find the clarity and focus in only a few minutes. Now a few minutes of training on biofeedback has become her routine before the start of her day's work, just like a warm-up exercise before the jog. After mastering the first level of biofeedback training, she finds that she's beginning to get a hang of controlling her attention, which makes her look forward to mastering the more advanced four levels of biofeedback training.
Compared to her previously fuzzy understanding of her emotions, FOCI's Negative Emotion Analytics is like having her own emotions mapped out to her. It intuitively shows Emily the paths of how her emotion changes. She finds that she is mainly in burnout loop and anxiety loop. Chances are she gets stuck in burnout loop first, which then causes her to enter the anxiety loop. If she doesn't adjust in time, by this time, they would propagate into another negative emotion loops. Now Emily is learning to use the Cambridge Focus Framework to trace these emotional problems and make targeted adjustments in time.
Emily slowly recovers her sense of control over her work performance, and her frame of mind is becoming more positive. This allows her to focus more on her work, and as her work efficiency improves, she becomes more confident and calm in the face of new challenges in the workplace.
