Kicking the Computer Addiction

So... I have a problem. I was thinking today and I realized that I am in front of my computer WAY more than I should be. This occured to me when I woke up from one of my naps and made a beeline for the computer. I then realized that I repeat this behaviour every single time I wake up!

Further, there's no reason for me to be in front of this giant box 'o fun. Well, right now there is because I'm writing a post, but for most of the day I DEFAULT to sitting in front of the computer. I scan through the 30 or so sites I have on my toolbar, even though most of them only update once or twice a day at most.

This is sick! Think about it - none of my interesting stories start of with "So, I sat in front of the computer all day...". Every hour I spend in front of this thing is an hour that my life is NOT getting more interesting. I spend a lot of time online chatting with my friends, which I enjoy, but is that really the best use of my time? Probably not.

Anxieties and Worries

On Work in Progress

Did this ever happen to you? One day, everything is going according to the plan, everything is flowing smoothly, the work is going fine, your relationships are excellent, you feel very energectic and next day you are sitting alone in a closed room worrying "what am I doing with my life?".

Anxiety is obviously not a very good mental state to be in, and of course, we all know that we should snap out of it, look at the silver lining, think positive, avoid negative and all that. But I feel that having a concrete set of rules, a standard operating procedure and a specific set of actions to take, goes a long way in helping us deal with anxiety.

Some of the worries and anxieties are very simple: Did I lock the car ? Sh*t! where is my watch? Did I feed the cat ? ...Some are not: What is the purpose of my life, am I living in alignment with it ? What if my soul mate is in a different continent ? What if my passion lies in a field which I haven't tried at all ? so on and so forth ...

It is never about an Immediate consequence. It is not similar to its more palpable cousin : Fear. It is not about losing your job, rather it is about reading somewhere that the economy is not very good and the outlook for the future is not very positive?

We can all agree that worrying is a huge time sink and that it is really bad for emotional well being.
