Now, the man who identified the habit has delivered the cure in "Indistractable - How to Control your Attention and Chose Your Life (Bloomsbury)".
The Israeli author describes how to manage the discomfort that drives distraction and explains why solving the problem is not as simple as swearing off your devices. With a four-step, research-backed model, Indistractable lays bare the secret to getting the best out of technology, without letting it get the best of you.
Among the chapters are Master Internal Triggers, Make Time for Traction, Hack back External Triggers, Prevent Distraction with Pats, How to Make Your Workplace Indistractable, How to Raise Indistractable Children and How to Have Indistractable Relationships.
"Empowering and optimistic, this is the book that will allow you to control your time and attention - and live the life you really want," the publisher said in a statement.
