Looking at Facebook, Reddit, and Boardgamegeek is the only thing I did all day, and I was neglecting responsibilities.
I started to notice the results of being tied to a 24/7 content cycle. I always wanted validation from my Facebook.
It took me awhile to find a solution to this problem. I try a lot of chrome extensions that block you from websites but were quickly overridden by uninstalling them.
I had to bring out the big guns and that was Cold Turkey.
Cold Turkey is an app that you use on your computer to eliminate distractions. It can block any website or any other application from your computer.
My current use of it prevents all website distractions until 9 p.m. I also give myself Friday afternoon and all day Saturday so that I can indulge in a limited amount of time.
So if you’re looking for a way to disconnect, I highly recommend Cold Turkey.
