Keep your phone away or in another room

I really struggled with this but you should be taking regular breaks so it might not be the worst thing that you are getting distracted as long as you end up going back to focus on it. I now use a combo of Loop earplugs and noise cancelling headphones too focus :smile:

Hello!

You can get apps that I have found helpful - they set a timer so that you work constantly for 25 mins, then get a 5 min break, and every few sessions you have a longer break. I found that really helped me because I only had to concentrate for a shorter amount of time.

reward yourself for focussing. don't reward yourself with distractions though but with something else. maybe food (but dont overeat),
