    First of all, i apologize if i'm posting this in the wrong section.

    I recently got into article writing, i'm not good at all but it's something i enjoy and i'm most definitely learning. I love spending my weekends drinking whiskey and listen to some relaxing music while i just write about anything that's on my mind.


    However...I can't write for longer than 10-15 minutes without getting destracted by something...Facebook...Emails...Youtube...You name it! It's not like i'm expecting important messages but i always get distracted.

    Have any of you guys felt the same way? If so...How did you deal with it?

    What helped me most of cutting down time on Facebook and youtube is I blocked them.

    Scrolling through Facebook feed is addiction/very bad habit. Its is built this way that most of the posts are "boring". I use this for Facebook: News Feed Eradicator for Facebook. Chrome extension. It really helped. I can still chat and search.

    certainly not having personal social media accounts helps a lot

    Not only blocks distracting stuff but also tracks your productivity with a nice dashboard where you can see what you did the entire week

    Modafinil. No joke. Ever see that movie limitless? It's kind of like the drug from that. Pop a pill and you'll focus for hours and get so much shit done. Best yet is it's legal to buy in most countries, and even in the ones it's not you can still order it online no hassle.
