Distractions and Procrastinations

Hi everyone, so right now I'm supposed to be working, on something, on anything!  There's an absolute ton of things I need to be doing from making jewellery, do designing, to editing a video to writing blog posts!  And yet I still manage to - A, get up super late and B, give in to a ridiculous amount of distractions!

I honestly don't know what's worse, instagram, facebook, group chats or poodles!  Everything lately is a distraction to me, even feeling hungry or just the sudden need for tea or the loo.  Plus I have the attention span of a gnat!!  I cannot sit still for more than 10 minutes without getting distracted lately and group chats may actually be one of the worse because even if I switch the notifications off on my phone, I fear I'm missing out on joining in on a conversation, urr!!

So how do we stop getting distracted you may ask?  Honestly, I don't know, I'm still in the process of trying to figure that out.
But so far I have come up with this, have regular set breaks, like every hour or if you can't wait that long, every half hour and then build it up but only have a break for 5-10 minutes and in between, work!  Make sure you get on with exactly what you're supposed to be doing during that time.  That way you can treat your break like a reward and at least look back and think, well I've managed to get that done so far.  Also make lists - write down each job you need to get done that day and mark each one off as you tackle it.

One thing I find awful, is that if I don't get all my jobs done in a day, they then go over to the next day and then I end up with a ton of things I still have to do because I put off doing them before, it's a vicious circle.  So start each day afresh.  And even if you don't feel like doing something, do it anyway, because it's done and over with and if you put it off, it'll still have to be done tomorrow!

And put that phone down; turn the wifi off, put it on silent, hide it in a draw.  Anything that makes you forget about those distractions until your break.

And honestly, it makes you feel pretty good knowing you've got stuff done too, the sense of achievement.  Jobs never take as long as you think they will and sometimes certain things can even be fun to do.  I started to have a tidy up of my makeup drawers the other day and I could've easily gone on longer but I had to stop as it was getting late and I still have the rest to do.  But my point is, I really enjoyed it and yet I'd been putting it off for nearly two weeks!

This post is basically just me randomly waffling and reminding myself not to put things off and not to get so distracted!  But I thought it might help some of you anyway :-D
