I have found that despite my efforts to limit my time online, that is still how I tend to waste the most time in a day. It’s true that the internet offers a plethora of resources and valuable information, but it can also be a source of distraction and procrastination. So I am making a conscious effort to prioritize my tasks and limit my online activity to only necessary and productive tasks.
I have started using the digital well-being service on my phone to set timers on my apps so I am alerted and the apps will shut down when I spend more than my allotted time on them. I have also set the bedtime mode on my phone to 9:00 p.m. The screen goes darker and only calls from specific people are allowed to come through until the set time in the morning.
By recognizing the potential time wasters of internet usage, I am better equipped to take control of my day and, hopefully, spend that extra time well. I know that I would be happier spending it with the people I love or alone in nature.
