Happy New Year! On an Internet Detox regime.

Happy New Year, and wishing everyone the best!

I had a great Christmas and New Year with friends and family. I even baked a carrot cake with cream cheese icing. Yum. It's kinda put me off cakes because it was so rich. I've decided to go to Weight-watchers next week and sign up for three months. And for the next few weeks, I've decided to cut down using the internet at home.

Yes, I discovered a lot of my time is online - checking emails, social media, researching  and procrastinating. So after various attempts to stop, I decided the best way was to remove my router and it to Momma AG to keep. It was hard. I replugged the router back four times and went surfing until I decided enough was enough.

It's not that harsh since I have access at work, my local cafe & pub and the public library. Those are manageable. The crutch came when I was doing a critique for a story on the online workshop I belong to and found I'd been on line for five hours. Five hours?

Not bad but I couldn't sleep so I work up at 4.00am since I'm an early riser and logged on. Worse thing was that I never posted the critique. After all that time I decided not it, mostly because the critique was more a philosophical debate than anything else.

It is very hard because I feel as if something is missing, I feel I am missing out. The fear of missing out. The positive thing is that I'm sleeping better since I don't have anything to keep me wired just before I go to bed. I can focus better on other computer tasks and not get distracted. So more productivity!
