How to Train Your Brain to Focus More and Be Distracted Less
Time Yourself on Social Media
The second that you find yourself on social media, set a timer so that you have a specific amount that you pre agree to and then log off. This way, you don’t turn a few minutes of distraction into 30 minutes and then forget what you’re doing.
Do What’s Most Important First
When you schedule your priorities first, everything else feels like a piece of cake or a bonus. It just feels so much better when you get it out of the way. Then you have the whole rest of the day to get to other tasks that maybe you were distracting yourself with.
Take a Break Every Hour
We’re not meant to sit in a chair all day long, even though that’s what many of us do. Every 50 minutes, go take 10 minutes for a break and to walk around. Make sure that you’re taking a break because you’ll be so much more productive when you come back.

Do you ever feel too busy; overwhelmed with everything you have to do – like there simply isn’t enough time in the day?
Do you ever wonder why some people seem to get so much more done? After all, everyone has the same 24 hours per day, right?
Time isn’t just hours in the day though. It’s your life.
And how you take charge of it, guard it, and use it determines whether you stay stuck in the trenches of joyless tasks and allow people to suck your energy or take charge and command and conquer your day.
You can have some of the best willpower, motivation, goal setting techniques, and decision making, but if you can’t manage your time, nothing ever really gets done.
