A Month of Less Distraction – Day 16

Posted by Steven Russell on Wednesday, July 16, 2014

My plan was delayed. Well, ok, I forgot about the planning ahead to stop the distractions before they happen until I was already on the road. And the distractions were the plagues that they usually are. There must be some way of reminding myself. Some way of making it a habit to head off the distractions before they present themselves. I will set a reminder on my phone for 6:30 tomorrow morning so that when I get into the car, my phone will say, “Breathe!” I will do one of my favorite breathing exercises as I drive: Inhale for 4, hold for 4, exhale for 4, hold for 4. That will set me up on a good foot. Maybe a Post It note on the dashboard, too. Since driving is one of the most stressful, distracting things that I do, that’s a good place to start. iPhone out.
