Another type of distraction can be ones which require concentration and help you to bring your focus to something completely different such as:

  • colouring (swearing colouring books are available!)
  • cross-stitch(say you've always wanted to say but never could out loud!)
  • crosswords or other puzzles
  • online games or quizzes
  • jigsaws
  • any other task which requires your full attention

It can take some effort to get drawn into these type of distractions, but they can be very effective too.

It might be helpful to choose an activity in advance that you would like to try and have it ready for when you want to use it.
