Digital Distractions: Overcoming Technocrastination


Did the title confuse you? I hope it did, because that was the intention. But in simple terms, we're talking about procrastination caused by technology. Are you ready to dive into this? Then let's get started. 💪


So, how do you overcome distracting yourself with phones, tablets, PCs, and so on? There are different ways to do that. Very briefly:


  • Download productivity apps (or some phones actually have time limits for apps that you can set). Personally, I only allow myself a minute every day for social media, except on weekends. You might say, "A minute? What's the point?" Well, I like to check notifications in the morning. ⏰📲💼


  • Can't set limits because you know you're going to break them? (There's usually a button that says "ignore limit".) Well, you can go a bit hardcore and ask a friend to change the password to your social media and only give it to you on weekends or any chosen days. 🔑🔒👥


  • As for the last option, you can make it even more extreme and go for the Nokia 3310 instead of a smartphone. I know that can sound very heartbreaking, but believe me, nothing bad will happen if you don't have access to your IG through your phone. 📵😢💔


The first rule when you want to stop doing something is to make it difficult, and it will be easier to follow along. I hope that was helpful. Now, a question for you, friends: comment below, what would you love to stop procrastinating with? 💬👇😊
