I used to think that when I got distracted it meant I should push harder or that I was doing something wrong. I mean that’s what we hear from many coaches and gurus. We hear that distractions are a result of our why not being strong enough, hell I’m sure I’ve even said it. I want to invite you to see another point of view around distractions.
Following a distraction doesn’t always mean that you’re not about your business or that you can’t stay focused. Some distractions are meant to be followed and experienced to help you get to your next level.
Making Distractions Work for You
I’m going to share the three ways that distractions can work out in your favor. Also, how you can learn how to take full advantage of them to serve you instead of stress you.
- They show your gaps. If you find yourself becoming distracted a lot it is showing your gaps. Gaps are areas that you need to get better at or let go of.
- They help you reconnect to what matters. Distractions can remind us that we are not spending our time and energy on what we said matters. So instead of seeing your kids or a household task as a chore view it as an opportunity to stop and smell the roses.
- They help you focus on you. Some of our most annoying distractions are really a sign from the universe telling us we need a break. Do you find yourself aimlessly trolling Facebook or YouTube? Blank distractions are often our brain’s way of telling us to stop and take care of ourselves. If you find that while working on anything for an extended period your brain starts turning to mush, don’t power through, power down.
I’m a high achieving entrepreneurial mom too so I get wanting to press until it’s done. But what I know for sure is that by pressing it’s taking you longer to get to your goal. By not taking a break at least every two hours it actually slows you down. Taking a break allows your brain to regroup and refocus.
I know you’re ready to get your business and family to stop fighting over you. I know it’s no fun to feel like you’re paying attention to one but feel like you’re neglecting the other. Mom guilt is so real, but it’s time to silence the guilt and stand in your power.
