Distractions Can Help Focus

One of the hardest things to do sometimes is to focus. It's difficult to block out things and do what we need to do.

Ironically, distractions can sometimes help us focus.

For instance, doing something a bit different from the work at hand might help stimulate the brain. Try a short little walk or some other type of exercise. Maybe even just a walk down the hall to the restroom.

A classic distraction is to watch a little television. While this can be helpful sometimes, it can also be more of a distraction at times, like right now. It's incredibly hard to write and watch television.

I guess I should choose a better distraction to help me focus. Maybe I should go for a walk.
