5 Day To Day Distractions And How To Deal With Them

8 Best Ways To Deal With Distractions

Published

on

Whenever we sit down to complete our work, let it be a house chore, office work, project, or study, we always face some distractions. And these distractions affect our productivity. The time we have to give to a particular job increases and hence; as a result, we can only perform a lesser number of tasks. So, what to do? That’s exactly what we are going to tell you in this article.

Unnecessary Talks

Unnecessary Talks

As humans are social animals, it is obvious we will talk to each other; however, unnecessary talks that are neither here nor there are only going to waste your time. Especially if you are in the middle of some work and someone comes to you to do little talks, it will ruin your focus and your time.

When someone approaches you for such small talks, you can politely point out that you are in the middle of something, and then when you take a break from your work, you can go to them and continue your chit chat.

Unarranged Priorities

Unarranged Priorities

It is hard to get everything done in a timely manner, everybody tries, but we are only humans too. So, in such cases, when we have numerous works overlapping, we need to prioritize our work. We need to decide which work needs our immediate attention and which ones can wait. After all, our work will probably never end, and it’s all a matter of priority.

You should make a task list including everything you need to do and then give them numbers in ascending order (order of increasing importance) or descending order (order of decreasing importance) to ensure which you should be working first.

Unarranged Workplace

Unarranged Workplace

Think about this, you have sat down to work and realized you need a pen. You get up, pick a pen, sit down to work when you again realize you forgot a pad. So, like this, there are many things one needs while working and when you have to get up again and again to gather all your stuff needed to work, your work rhythm gets disturbed.

How to deal with it?

Make sure to set up a workspace. Preferably, you should set up a table and a chair in a quiet place and keep all your necessary things there.

Background noises

Background noises

When we try to work on, say, an office presentation on our laptop or trying to study, our focus is on the laptop screen or book in front of us. So, nothing can distract us, right? What about background noises? They constantly distract us, don’t they? Our eyes would be on the work in front of us, but our ears are always wandering to hear this gossip or that. 

How to deal with it?

You can close the door to lessen the noise. Or, go to a nearby library for a quiet place. Small cafes or parks might do the trick too.

Social media

Social media

Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Linked In, Pinterest, your what’s app, and the list goes on and on. Think about this, if you give even 20 minutes to every social media platform you have, that is still a lot. Even if you just see all the messages, replying to everyone, and keeping yourself posted. 

How to deal with it?

Advertisement

First of all, make sure your notifications are off when you are doing some critical work. Secondly, decide a specific timeframe and use social media only in that timeframe. 

It might take massive control and huge willpower, but it will be worth it in the end.

Multitasking

Multitasking

Multitasking is a talent, but sadly not all of us have it. An article in the Harvard Business Review tells us that our productivity goes down by 40% when we focus on several things. It also affects our creativity as humans can only use one part of their brain at a time while different parts are needed to perform different functions. So, it is better to study one subject first and leave the worry of another subject later instead of not studying anything.

How to deal with it?

You can make a schedule and abide by it. We try to multitask many times because of the pressure on us. So, you can work for, say, 50 minutes in an hour and use the rest 10 minutes to calm yourself and gain back your focus.

Wandering thoughts

Wandering thoughts

When we sit down to work, we forget what we were doing. Because our minds keep wandering around, and we are unable to focus. And before you know it, you have wasted 10 minutes.

How to deal with it?

The best way is to remind yourself what your current goal is whenever you feel your thoughts wandering.

Smartphones

Smartphones

Now about the king of distractions. Smartphones are very useful, no doubt, but they are also the biggest distraction in our work. Let’s always hear one more song or watch one more episode of that anime or read one more article. And what is the technology that can provide ALL of this for us? SMARTPHONES!

How to deal with it?

• You should put your phone somewhere far from yourself.

• You should turn the internet off.

Advertisement

• Make sure the notifications are off.

• And most importantly, have some self-control.

8 Attractive Places Bollywood Made Us Love

Bollywood films have always been our source of new plans and wishes. Not only with amazing stories and songs, Bollywood has also kept us glued to the screen with some amazing travel locations. Right from our picturesque Kashmir to the beautiful European cities, Bollywood has everything in store for us!

Following are some fantastic places that Bollywood made us fall in love with!

Udaipur, Rajasthan

Exuberant Palaces, artificial lakes, and Grandeur can be synonymous with the city of Udaipur! Located in Rajasthan Udaipur has often attracted people with lenses to capture its royalty.

Films like Ram Leela by Sanjay Leela Bhansali and Yeh Jawani hai Deewani have not only portrayed the beauty of Udaipur but have also urged us to pack our bags and visit this city right away!

Prague, Czech Republic

One of the most eye-pleasing locations that Bollywood has gifted us! All Thanks to Imtiaz Ali! For certain, this Capital city with fascinating gothic monuments amplified the beauty of Jordan and Heer’s reunion in the film Rockstar.

Besides, some scenes from Jab Harry Met Sejal were also shot here. Be it for the picturesque views of the Prague Palace, Charles Bridge, Vrtba Gardens or even the red roof tiles, most of us surely want to be there once!

Chapora Fort, Goa

Hearing of this place indeed starts playing “Dil Chahta Hai” in your mind, or does it remind you of that BFF Goa Trip that was postponed for the 100th time? Well, we all plan to visit this place, just like Sid, Akash, and Sameer.

Popularized by the classic film “Dil Chahta Hai,” the Chapora fort is located in Bardez, Goa, and offers a vibrant view of the Chapora River in the north, Vagator Beach in the south, and the Arabian Sea in the west. This place attracts a lot of tourists and is also waiting for you to arrive with your BFFs!

Corsica, France

The 2015 film Tamasha starring Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone brought us to Corsica’s lively and historical city! Which is a mountainous island in the Mediterranean. Known for its hiking trails, flea markets, and local delicacies, this place is as lively as shown in the song Matarghasti!

While the city and its people witnessed the beautiful bond of Ved and Tara, most of us indeed added this to our wishlist. Once again, thanks to Imtiaz Ali!

Pangong Lake, Ladakh

We are sure that you might have seen the movie’ 3 idiots’. With Rancho and his friends being at the top, most of us have this place in second place. Situated in the lap of the Himalayas, Pangong Lake is surely a treat for the eye. In the last few years, this Lake and the city of Ladakh have undoubtedly been a paradise for filmmakers!

First seen in the film Dil Se, this place has also been captured in films like Sanam Re, Jab Tak Hai Jaan, and more! But mostly, it gained its popularity from the climax scene of 3 idiots.

Fun Fact: A lot of eateries around the Lake are named after the film 3 Idiots!

Turkey

This beauty was most probably left to be discovered by the Indian Filmmakers, and thanks to Zoya Akhtar, we got a new addition to our travel list!

As seen in the 2015 film Dil Dhakadne Do, Turkey became immensely popular among the Indian audience, mostly for the fancy Hammam Bath and the Galata Towers!

Kashmir, India

We are all aware of the bond that Bollywood and Heaven on Earth share! First seen in the films of the legend Shammi Kapoor, Kashmir has since then been the filmmakers’ favorite!

With Snow-capped mountains, vibrant gardens, and lovely people around, Kashmir has constantly enhanced the beauty of the films. Be it Alia Bhatt’s Highway in Aru Valley or Anushka Sharma’s dance at the Dal Lake, watching Kashmir on the silver screens has always been a delight.

Fun Fact: Many scenes from the film Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani have been shot in Kashmir!

Feelings When We Donate Generously

Feelings When We Donate Generously.

As stereotypical and cliché-ed as this may sound, there is truly no joy greater than the joy of giving.

With a constant need for any and every kind of help amidst the diabolical times of a pandemic, all of us have felt the need to contribute and engage either directly or indirectly into small acts of generosity, acts of kindness, acts of humanity.

Here are a few thoughts we all sympathize with when we make a generous contribution to society.

We are a part of something bigger than ourselves

We are a part of something bigger than ourselves

Our world is always shrunken to ourselves and our families, but when we start acknowledging and acting upon problems beyond our confined lives is when we are turning the wheels of a revolution for a better world.

We are abiding by our duties

We are abiding by our duties

Following the rules and being a law-abiding citizen is not the only thing expected out of us as humans, there are things that go without saying that we all must contribute towards. It is more of a privilege to be able to give than a duty.

To be givers is to unconditionally give

To be givers is to unconditionally give

It is only when we make our first contribution that we realize that one cannot expect something in return for some help towards mankind. If we are to give, give unconditionally. Just because science says your heart is the size of your fist, it need not be so in reality.

Someone somewhere is benefitted

To be able to sleep peacefully, content with the fact that you made a change in someone’s life is the best feeling in the world. No contribution is big or small, it is the intent that matters.

Givers and seekers

Givers and seekers

We are born into a family of givers, a family capable of giving to society, not into a family of seekers or askers. It’s more of a responsibility that the forces of nature have entrusted us with. Let’s do our part in making the world a better place.

Gratitude towards everything we are blessed with.

Gratitude towards everything we are blessed with

When you donate with all your heart, wishing it does some good into the world and finds its purpose, is when you realize how blessed you are to be able to not just help yourself and your family but even a stranger you know nothing about.

Always remember, it’s the intent that matters far more than the magnitude of your charity. To have a good heart and willingness towards social good is what sets you above everyone else.

There is a multitude of feelings we can all connect to on this topic, share with us, some of your thoughts and feelings about how social welfare changes two lives and not just one.
