I have noticed that there has been a huge uptick on my time spent on social media Reddit, Twitter, Tik Tok, Youtube and etc (I dont really use Facebook so its not an issue for me)… and to be frank it is making me feel miserable. Constantly seeing negative news and constant fighting in the news back and forth. This is why today starting at 19:00 CST I am not going to go on Youtube (except for educational purposes like learning things like physics or app development), twitter (will delete app off phone), reddit (will delete app off the phone) and etc. I also will be agree to not be looking up news on the internet. Now I will still allow myself to listen to podcasts on the way to work. Also I am allowing myself to listen to music as I do this often when working. Also I will allow myself to listen to educational audio books.
The reason I am posting this on here is because this is going to be very hard for me to do. I know if I dont do this at 21:00 CST I will be on reddit. I have created a GTbee goal ($50.00 if I fail) instead of an regular goal as I plan on only doing this for 1 week. I will give an update on Sunday (Tomorrow), Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday on if I have failed or if I am doing good. I will also discuss if I feel like it has had a positive effect on me. If I feel like it has had a major positive effect on me I may extend this challenge further.
