How to reduce time wasting

Last night after my family went to bed early I found myself listening to an audiobook.

At one point the author got around to the topic of not wasting time. He was talking about the amount of time and life that we use up on social media or reading news of which we actually have very little interest.

It is dead screen time as we aimlessly scroll further and further in the hope of finding that elusive something. It is no surprise that the person who invented the code for dead scrolling actually took his inspiration from gambling machines.

It is the same dopamine hit that we receive as if we were sat at the fruit machine waiting for the jackpot.

Anyways back to the audiobook.

It got me thinking about how little free time I feel I get to do the things I need to do, combined with that feeling in the pit of my stomach that I know I often spend 20 minutes scrolling late at night.

And so I came up with making a list of things that I am either interested in learning more about or perhaps I need to get done.

The list was pretty varied and diverse including such things as;

– Buy a Christmas tree stand

– watch a video for basic dog massage techniques

– stretch out

The aim of this list is that when I catch myself subconsciously turning to social media without a direct purpose, I now have a photo of the list of things I both need to and want to get done.

And guess what? Minttu was so so grateful for a 15 minute dog massage.

(I will try to cover some of the basic techniques in a blog post in the coming weeks so do check back).
