Tonight's my last obligatory day to not be a part of my normal social media routine. It'll be 15 days since I went on sabbatical from Twitter and Facebook. I have a show to promote so I will be back on but in a limited fashion. Here's how I am going to stay sane:
- Take everything day by day. Yes, just like a heroin junkie or an alcoholic, I need to reduce the scope of my life to be daily. Live each day to the fullest!
- Log in and out of every Twitter and Facebook session. Auto-logins made being on these items way too easy. If I REALLY want to do something, I'll give myself the additional time of logging in to gauge whether or not what I have to share with the world is important enough for the added 10-30 seconds of time to log in. This will be especially useful when I'm using my phone for updates.
- Remove bookmarks and shortcuts to my social media apps. I've already done it on my web browsers so I've just gotta do it on my phone. Another 5-10 seconds to mull over my involvement.
- Step away from the computer! Yep, take fawkin' breaks Nelson!
