I have been making steps to be intentional with my time and the next step is to limit how accessible I am. We live in a time where people are constantly expecting you to always answer a message, phone call, or email immediately. This leaves us with our phone constantly stuck to our hands.
We recently purchased a new computer that works much faster so I am going to remove Facebook messenger, turn off my email so that if I really need that discount code I can get it but I don’t need to check my email while I am out or even 15 times a day, I’ve recently ended all of the “streaks” I had on snapchat that always kept me coming back, I have turned off all notifications and set my husbands ringtone to a separate sound so I know it’s him.
If I’m doing dishes I don’t want to stop to check my phone or I will lose all motivation to finish the dishes so I am removing the temptations.
Once I get into a new habit of simply checking my computer once a day I will then begin to pursue another area of my life but for now I look forward to seeing how eliminating the daily access will affect my day to day life.
