Shedworking distractions

A nice piece at ivillage looks at five common shedworking distractions and how to avoid them. Ellen Parlapiano and Pat Cobe say the top five are:
* The Kitchen
* The children
* Personal calls and visits
* Housework
* The skiving urge

Here's an exercept:
"Distraction: The kitchen
As you struggle with a tough work project, you manage to distract yourself by popping into the kitchen and eat six cheese sticks, five biscuits, one leftover piece of birthday cake, crisps, etc. And you never knew you were capable of drinking so much coffee!
Bring healthy treats into your work space to discourage frequent and fattening trips to the fridge. Crunchy cut-up veggies, whole-grain crackers and dried fruits help satisfy cravings when you're in the mood to munch. Try to drink water. But if you can't work without several cups of coffee or tea, stick to decaf or herbal teas, and bring a thermos into your office so you don't have to venture near the kitchen."
