Ep 50: Distracted
Play • 32 min

In today’s episode Lucy shares about her biggest current struggle: feeling distracted. She asks Avery and Jamie for guidance on how she can intervene to find more peace and presence. We explore how distraction shows up, both for Lucy specifically and for many of us more generally. We talk about potential culprits for distraction, as well as dive into some specific strategies to help settle our brains and nervous systems so we can be more present in the moment.  

Do Try This at Home: 

  • Read Deep Work by Cal Newport, and start setting aside time for “deep work”
  • Set limits around technology, one of the biggest contributors to our distraction (e.g., only check email at pre-determined times, turn off notifications, have blocks of tech-free time)
  • Look for opportunities to experience “flow”
  • Practice being intentional with your time (especially leisure time)
