When it comes to Sims 4, emotions are everything. It can be especially frustrating when you can’t get your Sims to focus on the task at hand, especially when you want to build skills and productivity. Fortunately, there are ways and means to get them back on track.
In this article, we’ll explain how to get your Sims focused in no time.
How to get focused
There is more than one way to engage in this process. With the open world of Sims 4, there are several steps you can take to keep your Sims focused. Once you do, you can increase the speed of skill building and overall productivity.
Here are some ideas:
- Start by giving your Sim the Genius Trait. This will help them focus more often. Your Sim will enjoy doing any logical or productive tasks, including video games, programming, and earning logical skills.
- Create an environment that is good for focus. For your Sim to stay in a certain emotional state for any length of time, they need a good environment. Make sure they work in an office where they can concentrate on their task. You can also decorate the room with tons of elements like math diagrams to increase the likelihood of staying focused.
- Also use the focused Moodlet. If your Sims have work to do, you can put them in the focused mood by using the “Meditate” interaction or by drinking coffee or tea.
- Sims are just like us sometimes. If an activity distracts you, chances are the same activity will distract them. Put the phone away, turn off the TV and turn off all notifications.
- You can also encourage work behavior. Your Sims will be more productive if they have the “Work from Home” or “Study Hard” traits and if they are motivated to work on a specific skill.
- Make sure your Sim is happy. Your Sim must be happy to focus. Since every Sim is different, it all depends on you.
