Via the Headspace app’s “Productivity” lessons, I love this mindful approach to distractions. I’ve been learning that distractions can be good or bad. Like thoughts, they’ll always come and go.
It’s not the nature of the distraction but acknowledging its existence.
A skill I’d like to develop further is to be at ease with my current activity even if a distraction does arise. Calmly either allow it or not allow it. It’s that simple.
When I do this now—not consistently, yet—I’m naturally more productive. I stay longer in the flow.
