I always seem to be distracted by something. I can’t seem to focus on anything for more than a few seconds. It’s really frustrating. I don’t know why it happens, but it’s really annoying.
Watch this video, it will change the way you see things:
Why am I always distracted?
There is no one answer to this question as everyone experiences distractions in different ways. Some people find themselves constantly being pulled away by phone notifications, others find that they can’t focus on anything else because of the background noise in their environment, and still others find that they can’t focus on anything because their mind is racing uncontrollably. Although it can be frustrating, there is no one right way to deal with distractions and ultimately it is up to each person to find what works best for them.
These might look like not that valid reasons , but collectively it degrades your concentration.
Social media : the scrolling goes on and on, and the work gets delayed then even if you try to keep phone away , the apps are still on in the mind. So turn off lock screen notifications for Instagram, Facebook ,extra messengers, YouTube. (All these can be watched later)
2. Getting up in the morning : this really really matters , the first thing you do after getting up should not be checking the phone, it’s creating a to do list which will take 5mins , your mind will stay in the inertia of the work.
3. Unclean table /no workstation : there are Fizzy papers , pictures, objects which divert your mind or remind you of something so keep very limited things on your desk.
4. Keep deadlines : this gives a big reason to concentrate.
5. Talk to yourself : like the chefs do in cooking shows do that way .
Ex : “ok now I have to finish three pages in 15minutes , let’s get it done ..the keywords are..”
In this way you will silence the voice in the mind which is stopping you to concentrate.
6. Keep rewards : after a chunk of work keep a reward for completing it , like , if I finish this unit in this time I will listen to my playlist or eat this…
7. Keep yourself known about the competition : whichever field you are in ,set standards and keep yourself vigilant about the competition , another good reason for concentrating.
Hope it’s helpful.
