Addiction is when we are compulsively seeking out activities or substances that interfere with everyday life. There is no doubt that distractions like messaging, email, internet browsing, social media, and binge watching classifies. As a result, we have accepted increased anxiety, reduced quality of sleep, loss of concentration, and disconnection as the norm rather than the exception.

Focusing and being present with our attention is not easy in the best of times. Before the pandemic, 59% of workers feel physically depleted, emotionally drained, and mentally distracted. The pandemic has only amplified our problems, challenges, and dysfunctions. The pandemic also brought with it many new challenges as well as opportunities to make important needed changes. Today more than ever we need practices to protect our time, energy, and attention, to challenge the way we have always done things, and focus on what’s most important and let go of the emotional pull of FOMO and Instant gratification that keeps us checking our notifications, emails and cat videos.

What if distraction was a craving, would we address it differently? We have trained our brains over time to crave stimulation and distraction. During our breaks we don’t rest, we stimulate which furthers our level of distraction and impulse to further distract.

In this session, we create a heightened awareness around the problem, the costs, implications, and solutions to break the pattern and take back our focus.

  • Review the statistics around the emotional and physical implications
  • Identify top distractions and what it is costing you personally
  • Learn how to disarm temptation and impulse
  • Reveal 3 types of gatekeepers and how to use them to protect your focus
