Day #48: Distraction

Lately I have read so many blog posts about distraction.  Let's face it:  technology is a huge distraction, especially those darn smart phones.  I am guilty of spending too much time looking at the phone or having my face stuffed in a computer screen reading blogs of interest or online shopping.  While it's not all bad, there is a fine line to walk between balance and too much.  

For me, Facebook is the ultimate time suck.  I've come to realize that scrolling through the news feed simply sucks up too much of my time.  I'm trying a little experiment to reduce my time on there and will let you know if it works!

I am going to commit to abandoning social media on Sundays.  Seems like the logical day to do it!  I may make the occasional post, but I am not going to spend my day scrolling through feeds to see what's going on with everyone else!  I'm going to focus on my family.  I'm sure the world will continue to turn if I miss a few updates.

We have also implemented a no phone policy at the dinner table.  I need to put it out of sight during the day, too.  There is some truth in the theory of being addicted to the phone.  Time to break the cycle!  Who's in??  Can you part with your social media feeds for one day a week?  Do you feel like you spend too much time distracted by technology?

  1. I've been sticking mine in the kitchen drawer. I've also gone back to an alarm clock instead of the alarm on my phone. The less I look at my phone, the better.
