I blocked all the websites that I constantly refresh for the past week, leaving only an hour before bedtime as a space to peruse them (this particular post being an exception because I got drunk with a m8). It was frustrating at first, but I realised that being able to manage one's attention in this way, in a world where you're overloaded with gigatonnes of absolutely useless information, is basically a superpower. Every metric of my life has improved from not being glued to a screen that keeps providing endless novelty. After blocking websites that are built around exploiting the novelty impulse, I'm starting to relive those halcyon days of the internet when I used it solely as a tool to find information relevant to what I was doing, rather than as a form of entertainment to while the hours away.
Networked technology is the devil!
