Continuing on the topic of what happens when you remove distractions, today I wanted to discuss the benefits of removing distractions from your life. Your list of distractions may be different than mine, but we all have one. Distractions keep us from achieving what we truly want from life. It is an enemy to our goals and a rival to our dreams.
Distractions steal time from focusing on what is important. It may appear to be important, but is watching another episode of the show you like really important versus crossing something off your ‘To-Do List’?
What about checking your social media accounts for notifications every few minutes?
Do you start something, then jump to something else, and then something else, only to realize you have not finished the first thing you actually needed to have done several minutes ago?
I will admit, while I was writing this post, I checked my Facebook to see what was happening. I could use the excuse ‘looking for inspiration’, but really I wanted to give myself a break. No break was necessary, but I took it anyways.
What happens when you remove distractions from your life
You become less stressed. // Having nothing stand in your way to achieving your daily tasks rids you of stress. Your reasons to not accomplish something is demolished, therefore, you do not have to stress over if they will get done.
You become happier. // Working towards your goals can be difficult, but also exciting! Knowing that you are one step closer each day creates a happiness that can only be experienced distraction free.
You learn your worth. // Self-worth is a constant struggle for many. However, when you are able to focus on accomplishing your goals and getting a step closer, your self-worth has a chance to improve. You realize you are worth more than you thought yesterday.
You build incredible relationships. // Distractions can take up time that you could use to build relationships. Without distractions, you are able to focus on building relationships with people you care deeply about.
You learn a lot about yourself. // Do you really know who you are and who you want to be? Do you struggle to find the answers? Are distractions keeping you from learning about yourself? Pushing them aside, you can learn what it means to search for who you are.
You build confidence. // Do you struggle with having confidence in yourself? As you work distraction-free towards your goals, your confidence really has a chance to build. Knowing you can get one step closer to your goals diminishes the lack of confidence you used to know.
Your life begins to take shape. // The longer you live without distractions, the more your life can mold into the life you desire. The harder you work at it, the faster your life can mold into the life you desire.
You realize what your goals actually are. // Do you know what your life goals are? What about this year’s goals? Removing distractions allows you to focus and discover what they are, if you do not already know.
