We are bombarded with distractions, for sale more than ever before. Whether there are media messages that make us wonder if we measure us; constant technology interruptions; relentless anxieties; incessant demands; or unmanageable workloads; they kill creativity and keep us from reaching our most import goals. The good news is that dealing with distractions is a skill that can be learned and mastered over time.

  • Start by integrating the practice of long, cialis slow breaths into your daily routine, at the start of your day before getting up and at the end of your day before going to sleep.  The practice will force your mind to slow down and your body to relax, which will give you more energy and improve your sleep.
  • Be mindfully aware of the distractions that stress you the most.  Once you’re aware of these distractions you can do something about them.
  • Make time for a few minutes of reflection every day.  This will allow you to regroup and take a look at the multitude of demands on your time and your energy.  Over time you’ll be able to start moving some of these incessant demands onto a stop doing list.
  • Make a conscious shift from head to heart. When you’re in a reflecting mode, let your heart speak rather than your head. It has important messages to send you and the shift will allow you to hear those messages.
  • Take time to create goals that are meaningful and important. They will provide focus when the distractions appear and give you the courage you need to say no to those things that are not important.
  • When distractions get the best of you; and we all succumb at times; accept that it’s normal to give in to these distraction and move on. Don’t allow them to gain power over you and make you feel less adequate.

These changes take time so give yourself a break if you find it difficult at first. It’s not easy to shut down the chatter but with a little practice, you’ll soon gain mastery over the distractions in your life.
