When our thoughts are constantly being led astray by interruptions from all angles, it's important to keep focussed on the positives in order to stop your entire day falling to unproductivity.

Becoming more accepting of the present moment, acknowledging external distractions but not allowing them to knock your focus is crucial. Taking a few minutes to re-focus after hearing some distracting news, or changing your routine if you're stuck in a rut with a specific project can make all the difference.

Be proactive about creating a positive state of mind at work, and you're less likely to feel the paralysis of inaction.
