If you have ADD or sometimes have trouble staying focused, you know how easy it can be to get behind on your work.
Here are four major concentration killers, and how to bid them farewell:
Problem: You spend too much time checking your social media, consequently neglecting your job duties.
Solution: Don't allow yourself to login while you're on the clock, especially if you're breaking workplace policy. Instead, wait until you get a break to check your account(s).
Problem: You constantly check your email.
Solution: Pick a handful of specific times to check your inbox and don't diverge from that schedule.
Problem: You're not getting seven to nine hours of sleep per night.
Solution: Go to bed and wake up at the same time every day, even on weekends. Sticking to a sleep schedule will help you get the shuteye you need.
Problem: You're not eating properly.
Solution: Make it a point to always eat breakfast and never skip a meal.
Tip: Do yourself a favor and opt for more high-protein snacks and less products that contain a lot of sugar.
If you follow these guidelines and still feel like you need extra help, try making an appointment with your doctor. He or she can come up with a plan that works just right for you.
