A study from UC Irvine found "it takes an average of 23 minutes and 15 seconds to get back to the task" after being interrupted. It is mentally impossible to stay in the zone when you're attention is constantly interrupted by a Facebook notification, email, or retweet. So, use this simple tactic to take your productivity to the next level. Turn those notifications off, set a schedule for checking email and social media, and find your groove. You'll work faster and accomplish more, leaving you all that extra time to scroll that Instagram feed or search for Pokemon. (Warning: letting go of those comforting distractions can be a challenge though, so commit to trying it for a week and measuring your success before giving up) Watch tutorial videos for iOS and Android here:
