How can you combat Pseudo Attention Deficit Disorder?

This interesting video (shared by learningwavenzhere), featuring the 'time queen', Robyn Pearce, is a five minute additional "angle on time management".

Some of the key points made include how "the brain’s frontal lobe is adversely affected when we receive new information too frequently (the effect is called “Pseudo Attention Deficit Disorder” or PADD) such as emails, phone calls and 'drop-ins'" (source). And, "It takes approximately 10 times the length of the interruption to recover focus so a 30 second interruption can result in lost productivity for a further 5 minutes" (source).
