I like to head out to the nearest park or coffee shop (sans wifi because that's a distraction too!). When I'm surrounded by strangers or trees, I tend to focus better. Do the distractions at home take away from your work, so that you feel you need to go elsewhere?
The funny thing about distractions is that they're always going to be there. It's called life. For you writers out there - Remember, write now. There will never be a day that isn't filled with distractions. Even if you don't feel like it, do it anyway. Don't put off until tomorrow what you can do today.
What about procrastination? Oh, that's an ugly word. Being lazy or making excuses for why you can't do something now will never get you any closer to your goals. I'm no exception. I used to procrastinate all the time. However, I slowly started working on it and still have to push myself to this day. It's difficult to break bad habits, but you can do it if you want it bad enough.
Not only that but, you will feel much better in the long run. There have been numerous occasions where I simply rolled over when my alarm went off at four o'clock in the morning. Obviously, later in the day, I regretted not getting out of bed because I wasn't able to reach my goals. I have a much different strategy now. I just do it. The same concept can be applied to exercising or getting into shape. You really really just want to hang out and not do anything at all. However, once you're exercising at the gym or park, you feel amazing. You feel accomplished. Yeah, you're probably sweaty, stinky, and hungry too. Overall, you will feel great.
Don't just take my word for it. Get out there and get to work. Thanks for reading!

I always want to make it for sunrise. I plan on making it to the beach more often for this beautiful daily occurrence. Sunrise and sunset happen to be my favorite times of the day because the sky is streaked with amazing colors.
