I'm pretty sure I'm not the only one out there who spends WAY too much time on the computer, watching TV/movies or playing on their phones. Most days I can convince myself that it's really not that bad and it is how I keep in touch with so many people, via Facebook or email. But on a whole, I know I have a problem with spending too much time staring at some sort of screen.
So I've been thinking of ways to try and break this habit, to step away from technology a bit and learn to spend more time doing other things. Things like housework, gardening, reading, etc. I've tossed around the idea of giving up Facebook but in reality, I know that I wouldn't actually want to do that, since I'm in contact with a lot of my friends through Facebook only. I don't want to give up the computer entirely either, since I have this blog to keep up with and I wouldn't want to take that away from all of my readers.
Maybe over time I will get more used to it and it will feel less like a punishment and I will be able to add in more days of freedom. Or maybe I'll realize it isn't working and give myself designated screen times each day but the remainder of the day is free. Who knows, I'm just flying by the seat of my pants here. I'm going to take it one day at a time.
Anyone else ever try or are trying to spend less time on their screens? Any tips or advice for me? Anyone want to join in on my personal challenge?
