5 / 7
We spend a lot of time on our phones – much of it unproductive. We stop to check on a news item or sports score and before we know it, we have just wasted half an hour looking at cute animal videos. Do yourself a favor and place your cell phone someplace where you won’t be tempted to look at it while you complete the task at hand. If you are working on a laptop, close the web browser and keep it closed until you are done working. If necessary, use an app that limits your browsing time. If you avoid tasks by visiting the frig, then put a note on it reminding you to get back to work. You will be doing a favor to your productivity as well as your waistline.
