Do this instead

My brain could do better

Lately, I’ve found myself spending too much time scrolling through my Twitter feed. Sometimes when I come across something objectionable I delve into the post’s replies to see if someone out there has something to say that will make me feel better. I know, I’m just looking for someone to validate my worldview. I’m human.

All of this is unhealthy. I’m damaging my psyche and I’m wasting precious time. Why do I choose to devote energy to other people’s nonsense?

It is mostly nonsense, isn’t it?

The Solution

The way around this dilemma is to do something else! There are tons of things I can do with my time instead of browsing Twitter. Even going to Pinterest would be a healthier option. I made a list of ten worthwhile activities!

  1. Do something blog-related like plan and write posts.
  2. Engage with other bloggers.
  3. Practice playing the guitar.
  4. Learn how to use my digital SLR camera.
  5. Learn some jewelry making techniques.
  6. Draw
  7. Art journal
  8. Read
  9. Meditate
  10. Make more lists

I could go on, but you get the idea. I should consult this list the next time I’m tempted by Twitter.
