Today I posted this on Facebook after an hour of browsing nothing in particular and asking myself, “Where on earth did the time go?”
Notes to Self:
– Buy an alarm clock.
– Keep your phone away from the bed…
– …to stop reaching for the phone after waking up.
– Social media is a blackhole.
I seriously need to follow my own advice on avoiding procrastination: START THE DAY RIGHT.
To me, that means a prayer of thanks for another day and setting my mind to do what needs to be done for the day (not reaching for my phone).
Unfortunately, it’s become a habitual thing. I tend to get distracted with clicks here and there, without a particular goal in mind. Before I know it, an hour has passed.
I can’t totally cut off social media like Facebook, where most of my close friends and sisters check on me from time to time. Here in Philippines, FB Messenger has become a substitute for calls and text messaging. It’s a way to communicate, plan events, update groups.
Tomorrow, I vow to buy an alarm clock. It may be a simple thing, but that means I don’t need to keep my phone by the bed (I use it as an alarm). I will have to stick to a routine when I wake up: devotion and exercise.
If you’re also dealing with this issue, I encourage you to replace your usual routine with a positive habit early in the morning. Let’s do this together. 🙂
Social Media could be a black hole only IF you let it suck you in. It could be beneficial if used in the right way.
Let’s NOT be this guy:
How much time do you spend on Social Media? Do you have a household rule to moderate using gadgets at home? Do you set a schedule for yourself on when to use Facebook, YouTube, Instagram, etc.? What is your morning routine?
Do share it with us in the comments. 🙂
