Probably should have pushed workout until tomorrow felt worn out as soon as I started so took it easier

Trying to make an effort going forward to reduce pointless internet browsing

This website is pretty good and the format is such that I mainly check for updates and don’t lose too much time

Achilles heel I would say are Reddit and YouTube I deleted TikTok years ago as it was too distracting

Reddit does have good information in the right sub sections but I think the “signal to noise ratio” is awful and it’s easy to get distracted with related topic suggestions

I think a lot of posts are negative also people just going on to vent frustration or blow off steam

YouTube similarly has good videos but auto play and related video suggestions make it easy to lose time - for stuff like DIY projects I think it’s very good though

Phone showing 6hr35min average last week which sounds high but I guess includes playing music on the phone while commuting to work or lifting weights, looking for the right YouTube video to play in the background while doing chores around the house, then leaving it as background noise - I am guessing it also starts some kind of internal clock whenever you pick it up to check e-mail etc

BE THAT AS IT MAY I think it is good to have a “measurable” to track total internet use week to week to see if it is trending downward
