You can master your focus when you get rid of distracting habits. It’s hard to focus when your attention is diverted on things that don’t matter as much as your to-do list. Sometimes your habits contribute to your tendency to get distracted and unfocused. Ditching distracting habits can help laser focus your time and energy plus boost your production. Here are three distraction habits you can get rid of to make it easier to focus on your goals.
Master Your Focus Over The Social Media Distraction Habit
It may seem important to keep up with the latest YouTube video posted by your favorite influencer. You may be waiting on pins and needles for your comment to be seen and liked on Facebook, it could be distracting you needlessly. Turning off notifications can help you save social media for when you have proper down time. It’s the same for email notifications, text alerts and so forth. You can easily set specific tones on your smartphone for the most important contacts and let the others wait until you have free time.
Master Your Focus Over The Chatting Distraction Habit
Losing your focus, even for a few minutes can diminish your productivity and creativity. It takes a while to ramp back up to being in focus. Don’t allow yourself to get distracted by casual conversations when you are working. Closing your door and setting the tone you don’t want to be disturbed can help others keep their distance. If you stay focused you may get work done faster plus have more time for others when you are done.
The Multi-Tasking Habit
Multi-tasking is often thought of as an effective way to work, but doing too much at one time can water down your focus. Limit the types and number of things you do at once. Avoid listening to podcasts, music or television when you need to concentrate on a mental task. The background noise when you are working, can cause your mind to wander and get distracted. Skip talking on the phone or holding long conversations when you should be focused on a physical task. If you find you do better with white noise in the background or thrive taking on multiple tasks at once, try to limit them to the least distracting to your conscious or subconscious.
