Living with distractions

Published on:

I don't know about you, but Week 11 seemed to inch by despite being a short week! Maybe it's because it's the same routine day in, day out. Maybe it's the delivered promise of sunny weather and activity outside that constantly draws me to the window. We're all getting antsy.

Whatever it is, it seemed harder to concentrate this week, despite no let up in the need to do so. If you're in the Seattle area like me, you know this will continue into our summer. Here are a couple thoughts to break things up.

- Plan more frequent breaks. It sounds counter-intuitive, especially if you've worked hard to minimize distractions and carve out time for work. But we've been in the same environment with the same rhythms for an unnaturally long period of time and our brains crave a change. If you can, shift your working hours. Take a late morning stroll. Run an errand during lunchtime. Take late afternoon break to prep for dinner. Find a way to switch up the routine.

- Keep the news at bay. Many of us were or have become news junkies. It’s easy to become obsessed about the numbers and get caught up in the drip of regular updates. While new information is constantly coming to light, the overall narrative rarely changes. And when it does, the information will come to you.
