Everybody faces distraction, and we all deal with it in our own way. While we study or do something important, we end up watching tv on Netflix or surf through the internet or watch the social media and at last we feel guilty about a wastage of time. Here are some of the methods to deal with distractions

1. Sticky Note

This is a proven and to be effective tip to deal with distraction. While you study, you remember many things such as to call a friend or write a diary or do an assignment or draw a flow chart and you end up being confused and stuck in what to do next. For example, you remember that you have to do a math problem ‘2.1’, so write down the exercise number ‘2.1’ and stick it into a study table or the right corner of your laptop. In this way when you finish your study or something important you will do the math problem. This will help you to remain focus in your goals and you will be less distracted as much as possible and you will be happy.

So if you get distracted while studying online or doing something important just paste the sticky note in the right corner of your laptop and you will remember it.

2. Download required documents

Download the required or the necessary files in your computer and stop the internet network in this way you will be less distracted by social media or will stop getting attracted to it. You just must download the file or click a screenshot or print it out. This way some of the distractive things will get out of your way and you will stick to your goals.

3. To-do list

I know it is a very common method told by many people, but I will tell you a different method to make a to-do list. Here are the rules- don't write too much of tasks or activity in your to-do list which will demotivate you and make you end up doing nothing.

There is a new effective technique to build your to-do list. This is by categorizing your to-do list into three forms- least important, important, and most important.

In this way you will be able to categorize your to-do list. Also, you will not be confused on what to do next you will simply do the most important first and then the important and then the least important. This will help you focus on your goals and also you will be able to complete all the tasks in one day and you will feel happy but not guilty.

So make sure that you follow all the rules while making your to-do list and your to-do list will be the best and you will stay motivated all the time.

4. Reward yourself

Rewarding yourself is the best way to trick your brain into doing the important work. You can give yourself a reward while completing a work or an important task. Reward yourself for being motivated or being happy. You can reward yourself your favourite music or eat your favourite snack, it's all on you. In this way you will be focused to your goals and will complete your goals easily.

Can't believe I'm seeing this comment five months later. 😂🤣 I don't think it will help with quitting. It will only distract you/keep you busy till later when you're free then you'd do it again.

Distraction is a part of our lives which cannot be avoided. But I feel with the steps given above, we may be able to overcome it. Though not completely but for the moment an important set of tasks needs to be done.

I love the last one "Reward yourself" and I often do that these days. I have a few guilty pleasures and they are usually the ones I do or get as rewards for myself.

I did all of them when I was still studying, then I used my phone to record myself (timelapse) while studying. I used the Pomodoro technique 50-10 to be more productive and efficient.

The Internet and mobile devices are the biggest distraction for me but I do set a reminder on my phone since I use it mostly and it has been very effective.
