Wasting Time


I have no problem with wasting time in and of itself. Sometimes a little wasted time is good for everyone. I'm having a problem though with my level of technology wasting time. I went to a dance performance last night and spent almost the entire time on my phone doing a silly painting app. Now granted, it was fun, it was still a waste of time for no apparent reason. I need to change that.

One of the groups I belong to is doing a 21 challenge to reduce your time with technology. I'm not thinking of doing that, but I do need to change some things about the way I waste time. I have a lot to do this summer, much of it on the computer, and falling down the black hole that is Facebook is not going to get it done. I think I need to turn Facebook notifications off. I don't think I need to get them anymore. I can go to Facebook anytime I want and check it, I don't need to be notified of every little post. I also need to not keep a Facebook tab open on my desktop. I just went and did that, so no more notifications from Facebook, yay!!!  I have this great program called RescueTime on my Chrome browser that tells me how much time I spend on each site. I never check it :(   I think for the next couple of weeks I'm going to have to be very thoughtful about what I'm doing on the computer. Am I wasting time? Am I being productive? I want to break away from technology and get some of the other things in my life done. I have lots of crafts that I can work on and I really enjoy doing - much better than cruising Facebook....  So less Facebook time, more real-life time.
