Recently I’ve discovered a new way to write without distractions. No, it’s not shifting my office. No, it’s not teleporting the family to a desert island while I’m writing. No, it’s not creating a magical silence shield around my head so I can’t hear anything.
Well, maybe it’s a bit like that last one.
The Distraction Free Headset is a customised sound dampener for your ears. It’s simple to make and easy to wear, and the components are very common. Sharing this secret might ruin my chances of making a fortune out of it, but here goes. Drumroll, please? The components are…
(dun dun DUN)
One beanie. Two socks.
And now instructions for setting up the Distraction Free Headset. Put the beanie on your head and pull it down as far as it will go. Fold up the front edge only to make your view better. Now take the socks. Small socks work better than larger ones. Please note that these socks do not have to be a pair, but having socks the same size is more comfortable.
Lay the socks flat. Fold them halfway, then halfway again. Lift up the side of the beanie and stuff the folded socks into your ears. If an edge of the sock goes into your ear, the muffling works better.
Congratulations! You now have a customised sound dampener to free you of distractions. Please write to me and tell me how well the Distraction Free Headset works for you. I plan to monetise this product, and the more feedback I get the better.
