How to beat the Distraction Gremlins

Modern day distractions come in many forms and vary drastically depending on a your lifestyle. From the mundane – like scrolling through social media – to the more complex such as getting lost in a book, distractions are all around us.

Technology has made it easier than ever to be side-tracked from our intentions, whether we’re spending too much time on our phones, or indulging in online shopping.

Also, the ubiquity of modern day work culture can lead to long hours and high stress, which can lead to further mental and emotional exhaustion. That may lead to negative patterns of behaviour and mental distress.

Even the most organized of us can be hindered by these distractions, from not getting enough sleep to missing important deadlines. It’s essential to recognize these distractions and practice healthy habits to ensure that we stay productive and on track.

Any of this sound familiar?

βœ” Do you need a little more focus in your day?Β 

βœ” Are you weary of working from home on your own?

βœ” Do you need a good dose of accountability to get your stuff done today?

🌈 Working from home, whether you’re employed or a self employed entrepreneur, there are going to be times when you just can’t focus.

πŸ’– Don’t be harsh on yourself. It’s perfectly normal human behaviour to get distracted and it happens to all of us.

πŸ•πŸ’­ That said, there does need to be some Deep Work, where focused time is spent ‘doing the work’.

πŸ‘‹ I joined an online community called FLOWN in November 2021 to help keep me on track and quickly turned into a Flownie fan. A year later and I still loved the deep work productivity Flown gives me so I signed up for Lifetime Membership.

⁉ What is Flown….what does Flown give me?

βœ” Imagine a virtual office where instead of the usual distractions, everyone is laser-focused and getting stuff done.

βœ” A Zoom room full of strangers all working together to get stuff done.

βœ” It’s like having a virtual accountability buddy, who helps you stay on track and avoid procrastination.

βœ” FLOWN, a secret society of productivity ninjas, all working together to conquer the never-ending to-do list.

Curious? If this sounds like something you need in your life the Flown team are running a bit of a promo this month. Here’s what they say:

“If your friend becomes a full FLOWN member they get 25% off their membership and you get a special reward from us!”

Being part of the Flown community has been life-changing for me. It’s a super friendly group of individuals with one goal – to get stuff done. The facilitators are incredible, giving balance and structure to your day, and some fun break-out sessions. They’ve had me dancing, taking part in quizzes and speed doodling to name a few of the fun mini-break activities.

I’d love to see you give the community deep work sessions a go – there’s a free trial and if you decide to join up I’d encourage you to use my referral code.

To be totally honest, I don’t care about the reward for myself, as I said before, I’m a Lifetime Flownie so I’m in it for the long run anyway. The facilitators and participants are a lovely bunch of humans and I’m grateful for the friendships that I’ve developed through the sessions – all a massive boost to my own mental health.

Adopting better habits and thought patterns can help us accomplish far more than we feel is possible. Life coaching conversations can help you make those positive changes. You have the space and time to explore what keeps you stuck, unfulfilled and not living aligned to your values.
