    Digital Minimalism for 2021

    Pretty sure I had a post about this for 2020. I also think I was decent for a while about not getting on Instagram on my phone. However, overall, I decided I was going to have to take more drastic action. I can’t give my life to the Internet like I’ve been doing. I’m starting to implement these things this month, hopefully it will be fully in place by the end of the month.

    1. Website and app blockers during week and Sunday for social media and anything I find distracting or obsess over.
    2. Saturday is my day for blogging and scheduling posts, comments, reading blogs, social media, and YouTube, and then only when I’m not spending time with family and probably for a limited time of the day, then the blockers go back on again.
    3. I’ve gotten good at limiting my email to a certain extent, but there are some more notifications I can turn off, and I can always remain vigilant. I’ve gone back to emailing myself tons of links which builds up.
    4. Do my digital to-do’s in the morning when I have more self-control.
    5. No computer time when I get home from work, nothing should be such an emergency that I’ve got to deal with it right then.
