Re: Time and Computers

I, too, can zone out on the computer--doing research, of course!--for long periods, even occasionally missing appointments I have been looking forward to for weeks.

I have to say, though, that Fitbit has been a big help with this, since I allowed it to start helping me, by buzzing my wrist at 10 minutes to the hour if I have not logged 250 steps that hour.

250 of my dance steps takes less than 2 minutes, and Fitbit credits me with the steps, but not the minutes...unless I go for a minimum of 10 minutes. So most often I may start out by doing its bidding and doing the 250 steps. But then I keep going for the extra carrot of getting credit for 10 minutes.

And, presto, I have a whole new way of wasting time! Some days I do 20,000 steps and not much else.

Re: Time and Computers

Sooo... Not having the patience to read through 15 pages of posts right now, could someone summarise any solutions/tips/strategies that have come up in this discussion?
