KMG Marketing on Dealing with Distractions and Stress during work

Your level of productivity at work can be determined by the kind of distractions you have and how you respond to them.

These things can be external or internal influences that impact your ability to attain your deliverables and set targets. Most times, we don’t even take note of these little things.

Here is a list of some work distractions are and how you can manage them.

SmartphonesA general way to manage this is to shut off your notifications, ignore the lights when they flash because the truth is that these messages can always wait.

Fatigue:  Fatigue would leave you unfocused, tired and sleepy, which renders you unable to perform at your best. This arises from working overtime, keeping late nights, sleeping less or other activities that lead to overstretching yourself physically and mentally. Endeavour to rest, sleep and exercise

Noise:  Noise as a workplace distraction might be within the confines of your office or remote work location. You can mentally block off the noise but it is more efficient to listen to non-lyrical music. They have a calming effect and can help you focus better.

Clutter and Multitasking: Having your office space cluttered can be distracting and also brands you as a disorganized person. Be keen on keeping an arranged desk and office space, focus your energy on tasks according to how they have been prioritized and avoid multitasking.

Being involved in too many tasks at the same time usually leads to a situation where you might not complete any of the tasks you originally set out to accomplish.

Office Chit-Chat: Those little conversations with your coworkers, when not controlled, can affect you negatively. Keep your office chit-chat low.

These could also come from in-office communication apps like Hangouts, Slack and Skype to name a few.

How work distractions affect you will largely depend on how you manage yourself. There will always be distractions but you can perform at an optimal level where your tasks and career don’t suffer for it.
