Social Challenge of the Week

Interruption Awareness Challenge

How often are you switching tasks or interrupting your thoughts and tasks with new ones? Spend some time noticing your interruption patterns. What feelings are you experiencing during the interruptions? Ask yourself, “What do I need the most right now?” Don’t worry if you don’t have an answer right away, keep asking as the interruptions happen. When you do get an answer, stop and make time for what comes up.
