If you’ve been reading this blog you know I’m big on focus and blocking out unnecessary distractions.

What about when you don’t have control over your environment? You still have control over your ears.

The app I’m recommending is called myNoise. It’s one of dozens of noise generators in the App Store. Most of them are good and work on the freeimum model.

Use an app like this to sever your connection to your surroundings. Create your own space. Combine with a decent pair of noise canceling headphones and you are set.

Another option is a meditation app. I’ll talk about that tomorrow.
