1. Block out all the distractions when completing a task
In the modern-day world of social media, it’s almost an achievement in itself to go an hour of the day without scrolling through your news feed. And thanks to the smartphone, our distractions aren’t only assigned to the house. And whether you’re at work trying to complete the latest report or in a cafe attempting to write that elusive first novel, make sure you get into a habit of turning off your phone. Granted, you’ll still be online if working with a computer, but you won’t be beholden to people’s calls and messages. But if you still don’t trust yourself with a computer- even after you’ve switched your phone off- then download Cold Turkey- a website which blocks typical procrastination sites likes Facebook and Youtube.
