Distracted from what? Wearing blinders and pretending reality doesn't exist is ostrich thinking. If your religion is strong it will help you to FACE the world and to cope with what life throws up. Pretending otherwise is a cop-out, sorry.
Christians (or anyone else) not already doing so, may well find benefit in ways yet unseen by becoming more mindful and in touch with the modern world around them, instead of rigidly closing their minds around archaic Bronze Age narratives.
Sadly, many will never open to this possibility, but I do think they are a minority.
You could follow the lead of Jews, atheists, Hindus, etc. Choose your path in life carefully, love your fellow man, be kind and generous and take care of nature.
Only listen to those as brainwashed as yourself ... And ignore any outside influences, no matter how rational or obvious or factual they may be.
By giving up the delusion of christianity.
There is a lot to avoiding being distracted by this world. It is something that only a Christian would understand. I think for a Christian the words at 1Cor 15:58 would contribute to answering your question. I am assuming that you are a Christian, you can see by the other answers how a distinction is made.
Do not let the things you possess, end up possessing you.
Luke 12:15 And he said unto them, Take heed, and beware of covetousness: For a man's life consisteth not in the abundance of the things which he possesseth.
Turn off the TV, well it's a start.
By keeping our eyes simple and not being caught up in the ways of the world; it eager pursuit of material things and its overindulgence in pleasure. One example is that of Demas, a fellow Christian, who took his eyes off the prize; the prizes of this world distracted him, and he stopped running in the race for life. We need to get the right mental attitude toward this world’s prizes, “because everything in the world—the desire of the flesh and the desire of the eyes and the showy display of one’s means of life—does not originate with the Father, but originates with the world. Furthermore, the world is passing away and so is its desire, but he that does the will of God remains forever.” (Phil. 3:15; 2 Tim. 4:10; 1 John 2:16, 17)
If it truly your wish to maintain your world view and be not lead from your path by "The Temporal" . . . Well then perhaps live you life out in a 3rd world country taking care of the sick and staying very close to members of the church. Engross yourself in the Word of God everyday and pray for things that are likely to happen.
The more "Things" you surround yourself with the harder it is to focus on what might really be important to you.
If this sounds a bit extreme, then simply understand the basics . . . To maintain such a Christian life, one must engage a support group. The church and its members are that support group.
They don't focus on material things if that's what you mean. I should know my mom is a Christian.
Just like in any facet of life, we avoid distractions by remaining focused on our goals and working toward them. The world has many good and bad things to offer, but if we try to take advantage of absolutely everything, we can lose sight of our true purpose and eventually alienate ourselves from what we were searching for in the first place.
Certainly part of being Christian is to avoid sin and the occasions of sin ("distractions", generally speaking).
We also tend to think that sacrifice is an appropriate way of life.
Nothing wrong with either concept, but they are inadequate for the Christian mission.
But we are meant to use what we are given---remember the parable of the talents" (Matt 25:14-30).
We are meant to have more and prosper, not have less: ---by feeding the masses who came to hear Him, Christ provided the loaves and fishes for all and there was much left over.
Mother Theresa found her special calling and did much for her fellow men.
Each of us also has a special calling. Those of us who are in a first world country can still find those who need our assistance in various local areas---and you don't have to go to the homeless shelters to find an area where you can make a difference.
"Bloom where you are planted."---Jeremiah 29: 1-7
You mean material things? They don't let that kind of stuff get the best of them. There saved by God. They accepted Jesus Christ as there lord and savior.
Confirmation bias, it's the only way. Close your mind to anything outside of your beliefs, close your mind to anything that may prove your delusion meaningless. Sir Issac Newton had the best explanation when he hit a problem that seemed to be insurmountable, he just said "God did it". It's called the God of the gaps. Fill in "God" in all the blanks:
The universe came into existence by ____.
Man came into existence because of ____.
Man has his moral attitude from ____.
The Earth was formed by ___.
That is "God of the gap"s so quit your science class, and your ethics class, stop rational thinking, you have all the answers you need... God.
