Ep 099: Dealing with distractions
In this episode, Richard and Pilar discuss the impact of distractions. Given the context at the moment – with lots of people returning to their shared physical workspaces – it’s timely to explore the factors that can distract us and disrupt our focus.
We can find ourselves distracted both by events around us, but also our inner life: thoughts and emotions. We take a look at some helpful ways to think about distractions and some suggestions for how to deal with them more effectively.
