31 Oct '18 — autumn resolutions
Is it possible to spend an entire month without the Internet?
I get so worked up with the news and click bait headlines all over the web, Twitter, Reddit, everywhere I look.
Today I actively stopped myself from looking for distractions online. I’m surprised how often I grab my phone or open the browser…is it even possible to restrain myself for an entire month?
Maybe November will be the month.
Apple and Google are now reporting on usage. I’m actually online a lot less than I think. It may say I spent a total of fifty minutes this week on social media, but to me, it feels like I spent 12 hours. Thoughts continue to run in my head after I’m exposed to the stories I read. So really, it could be ten times more than the recorded time.
November is the month to start over (I hope!).
