How to Get Rid of Distractions from Smartphones and Internet?

Morning.

You take the seat in your favorite corner. Today you’re determined to knock off the work you’ve been procrastinating on for almost a week.

However, just before starting, you decide to check your inbox. You check, and you don’t find anything worth your attention. (That’s what is going to happen if you check too frequently.) Because it got done so quickly, your digital-thirst isn’t quenched. You decide to skim your Facebook feed as well. After all, you plan to be off internet for three hours immediately after this.

You’re on a slippery slope now. You like (thumbs up) few pictures, leave few comments, chuckle at a funny video, and then click on a click-bait BuzzFeed article, which lets you slip further to a YouTube video. And then few suggested videos from YouTube’s long list of seductive thumbnails and titles…

By now, you’re neck deep in entertainment and procrastination, ignoring what you set out to do.

Sounds familiar?
