For many distractions that helps me avoid getting derailed by the distraction while clearing my mind from concern about what I’m missing, since I can go back to it later without fear of forgetting it.
Some distractions are too urgently compelling to ignore, like a call from someone important or potentially important. I use a pomodoro timer to divide up my focus periods and let me reassess my priorities every period, and for urgently compelling distractions I just pause it and leave the timer visible. That reminds me I’m in the middle of a focus period so I can get back to it after a brief distraction or skip the interval and start over if the distraction is a long one. This is helping me so far.
If you lost your focus while meditating simply acknowledge the thing that is distracting you and start thinking about your breath start saying inhale and exhale in your mind
If you feel that you have lost your focus on life then simply try to be more mindful and make new habits or resolution or start a new think of it as a new opportunity for you to start again
