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. ๐Ÿ’ช

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. โฐ๐Ÿ“ฒ๐Ÿ’ผ

  • 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. ๐Ÿ”‘๐Ÿ”’๐Ÿ‘ฅ

  • 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. ๐Ÿ“ต๐Ÿ˜ข๐Ÿ’”

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? ๐Ÿ’ฌ๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿ˜Š
