Somehow even with my limit I am finding that my first step as I pause in quiet moments is the internet.
I check the 5 blogs with interesting 31 days series I’ve allowed myself once a day each. I check my blog for comments and traffic. I check my email. I check the weather. And then I’ll pick up a book or whatever else.
That is much better than before, but it still feels like I’m missing the point a little this month. It feels like at the end of the month I’ll just fall back into the habit of checking everything before I go accomplish things. I don’t want that.
I want this to be the point of breaking it off with the internet.
I want it to be a point I can look back to and see a good amount of positive change.
I’m thinking I need to stop all the random checking when I first sit down.
It breaks up the rhythm of the day and just leaves me in the same entertainment sinkhole looking for more.
I think instead of checking randomly I’ll make sure to write my blog post, do my 31 minute activity and read my bible/pray first.
And then I can check my blogs, the email, and the weather, if I must.
These last couple days I’ve been scurrying to finish a blog post at bedtime and in the process giving less time to my husband and less thought to my words.
We’ll see if this works a little better.
I haven’t managed my 31 minute project yet. I’m thinking I’ll crochet on the way to see the rest of our family this evening. We shall see!
