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 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!
- Do something blog-related like plan and write posts.
- Engage with other bloggers.
- Practice playing the guitar.
- Learn how to use my digital SLR camera.
- Learn some jewelry making techniques.
- Art journal
- 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.
