I never tracked my time on Facebook or playing Words, but I’ve been amazed at how a “few minutes” with either can morph into hours. Facebook may keep me connected, and Words is brain-stimulating, but they cost. If I stopped, would I be more productive?
Last weekend I posted that I’m taking a FB break and immediately signed out of my web account and apps. I’m finishing active Words games (to preserve my stats) but not starting new ones. I feel some classic withdrawal symptoms, but I’ve packed away the Christmas decorations and finished a novel.
I’m encouraged. I can do this. For awhile, anyway.
