Spending lots and lots of time on the computer these days?

Too much time?

I’ve been noticing that this seems to be a common problem with many of us. We are constantly checking our email, constantly getting distracted by things we really don’t need to be reading and are simply wasting LOTS of time on the internet.

Wouldn’t it be nice to just check our email once a day? Or even skip a day?

If you’re spending too much time on the computer, it might mean that you’re bored and unstimulated and have too much time on your hands. Find something meaningful and rewarding to do to replace the computer time. This could be a new hobby, exercising, volunteering (could be from home volunteering), etc.  There are many possibilities out there.

Set a specific time in the day as computer time and spend the rest of your free time doing something meaningful that you would really enjoy.

(If you’re not sure what you would even pick to do, coaching might help to clarify what your interests are and where your excitement lies and get you moving in that direction.)
