Your Cell Phone
You cell phone could be one of those reoccurring distractions that throw you off from your workload. From phone calls about the kids to texts from friends and family, our cell phones are easily an important aspect in many of our lives, since it keeps us connected instantly.
If turning off your cell phone is what you need to do to get your mind focused on work during the day, then that is a great way to control the distraction, but if you must have your cell phone on, use it for emergency purposes only. Your cell phone does not have to be in plain sight or a short distance from you at all times. If someone texts you, don’t continue an hour-long back and forth with them. And if it is not something you need to get work done or for personal emergencies, then it does not need to be in use heavily. Moderate your time on and with your phone.
