Shawn Achor, Harvard scholar and researcher and author, has provided valuable insight on how to improve your daily productivity, by simply decreasing the amount of unnecessary “noise” in your life. In his book, Before Happiness, Achor discusses the surprising rewards of that can result from simply decreasing 5 percent of the “noise” in our daily lives.
Specifically, there are 4 effective ways we can allot more room in our brains by eliminating the following types of auditory input:
1) Mute TV and Internet commercials
2) Turn off the car radio when talking to others
3) Leave the radio off for the first 5 minutes in the car
4) Remove news media links from your internet bookmarks
