Distraction action is your response to something negative or just not too productive.
Are you tired of throwing away days to frustration, worry, wandering, self-pity, and panic? You need to focus when your day begins, need focus on what you hope to accomplish?
The action you choose will be the distraction you need to deal with whatever may be the problem.. And problems erupt in all walks of life, including blogging.
What kind of distraction action can we use?
Some say, let the issue pass you by like sailboats on a river, do not fret. Kind of like going with the flow. Others say, embrace the problem or wonder WHAT can I learn from this? I like to let them pass and try to learn from them.
However, many people are naturally forgetful, so it is tough for them to truly embrace or wonder. (Cannot remember, lol).
How about dealing with negativity, whether your own thinking or from others. It can sometimes set you into a negative Nanny spiral. Well, you can act/think contrary to this, by focusing on the good with an attitude of gratitude. As simple as, thank you for a roof over my head, thank you for a refrigerator that works, thank you for my car and the list goes on. It helps change your mindset and bring you back to a center of peace.
As a blogger, if you start thinking negatively, you can take distraction action.
Look at your successes, learn from your failures, always keep moving in a direction that facilitates action you are pushing towards. Do not let others or self destroy your momentum and goals.
A Distraction Action is doing anything, and I mean anything that will take you away from what you are currently doing in that particular moment.
Distraction action is something you can fully embrace and you may have your own methods already lined up. Feel free to share how you handle the obstacles in life, obstacles in blogging or other areas. It is fun to learn from others.
I like the image of swans, they are graceful looking creatures that hold an air of authority. They always appear to be doing what is best for them and have an air of peace. So, here is an image we can hold onto for that peace of mind and focus of thought for all of us. I think they are great creatures to ponder when we are falling into thoughts, actions or other other ways that are not where we want to be.
