Q&A: Too Much Active Focus?

Yes, you can overdo things, including active focus. Though if you do, you'll definitely know it. The symptoms are rather obvious!

The question was recently asked in the BackTo20/20 support forum:  

“Am I overdoing active focus?”

Important note:  If you want to get started improving your own eyesight, I offer a number of courses, including options for one-on-one support with me personally.  Check out the courses page for what’s currently available to help your eyeballs.

This really gets into the nitty gritty of daily habits and implementing stimulus concepts into your lifestyle.

I made a video explaining when you may be overdoing it with the active focus.  It’s available as part of the Rough Guide with pro topic videos, as well as BackTo20/20 – see the courses page.  

If you aren’t currently a supporter of endmyopia via any of the courses, here’s the cliff notes:

If you’re getting headaches, tension in your eyes, reduced centimeter measurements, or dry eyes following a long active focus session, then you’re overdoing it.  There should be no symptoms of any kind following active focus work.  

Further, it’s more important to build a habit of doing active focus regularly, than doing a whole lot of it at any one time.  

I’ve also made quite a few videos discussing active focus and habits, over in our YouTube channel.

Keep making all those 20/20 gains!
