- Identify the sources of distraction.
Distractions can come in the form of sensory or emotional signals. Sensory distractions are external stimuli that can divert your attention away from the task at hand, such as a notification sound or a phone call. Emotional signals, on the other hand, are internal stimuli that can affect your emotions and, in turn, your ability to focus. Sensory distractions are easier to ignore, but emotionally charged signals can be more difficult to tune out. Regardless, it's important to identify the sources of your distraction, so you know how to address them.
- Focus on one task.
Choose to only work on one task at a time. This will strengthen your focus as you avoid the distraction of needing to switch between tasks.
- Be mindful of your thoughts.
Be mindful of your thoughts and try to identify when your mind is wandering. If you find yourself ruminating on the same loop of worry, try to come up with a solution or insight and then let those distressing thoughts go.
