Distraction may seem not-so-great for productivity, but it is vital for your survival as well. Too much focus can be dangerous as we may miss potential changes and threats.
That being said, concentration happens best in total silence, especially in work that requires cognitive effort.
Coffee shop noise is a pleasant backdrop for productive work and noise-cancelling headphones aid in better screening out unexpected noise.
Each person may have a varying 'concentration mileage' depending on the kind of work being done.
One’s ability to concentrate is enhanced by having an efficient working memory, which needs to be exercised regularly.
Trying to remember stuff, and recalling numbers and listed items, increasing the numbers every week is a great way to improve our working memory.
