Setting Boundaries to make me more productive.

Or how I manage ADHD in a busy world.

The Farm at Benevolence Farm.  A calming place

This is my first story.  The world is a busy place and so is my mind.  I am someone that can get easily distracted and go down many rabbit holes.  I am trying to better set boundaries for where I go and what times I go there.  I have recently discovered the Freedom App.  I have been using it to set social media boundaries when I am at work and at home.   When I am on a project or working, I can find myself trying to escape to other places.  This app has done a really good job of helping me stay with in the boundary or work or home.   Every time that Green block comes up when I try and go to Facebook,  I get a better at not going there.   It is like a electric fence in the digital world that is my boundary.  

I also think that Yoga and Meditation have helped my mind set boundaries and not go off everywhere.  I hope that with this community and my will, I can be more focused and more often than not, stay within my boundaries.
