Distractions are everywhere. When you’re eating, taking a walk with your dog, having coffee with a friend, or even when you’re rushing towards work, there is always something that can take our attention away. And when we lose focus on our task, we become unproductive which means we get less things done. This can be very frustrating.

In this episode of On Purpose, Jay Shetty talks about different ways we can divert our attention and lessen the impact of possible distractions that may come our way.
