time 2 complain 

i waste so much time every day like i just spent an hour of my life reading some stupid reddit thread that i didn't even care about and there are so many other ways i could have spent that time and i do stuff like this EVERY DAY and every time it happens i feel like garbage but it's just so difficult to stop it's so easy to fall into time wasting behaviors like this i really need to start doing better

@marymiller I know exactly what you mean. It's way too easy to waste time.What I do is I'll do all my chores/work/productive stuff then reward myself with garbagey things I.e reddit, video games.

@Publicvent i try to do that as much as possible but where i fall apart is during little in-between moments. for instance, last night when i wasted an hour on reddit--i had just gotten out of the shower and i knew i had to write in my journal but i decided to lay in bed for just five minutes and i'd totally get up at [time five minutes from now]! but of course it never happens like that. it's definitely an issue of self-discipline + avoidance, i need to just buckle down and focus

@marymiller Yeah, procrastination is hard to deal with, especially when there are so many distractions. You've just got decide to do something and once the ball gets rolling its easier! I would say make a commitment to writing at least one sentence in your journal per day. And you'll probably get into the habit of it more :)

@Publicvent that's a good perspective. i'm a very black-and-white person so it's easy for me to fall into thinking like "i can spend NO TIME ON MY PHONE AT ALL TODAY" and i also am overly harsh on myself sometimes, but little steps is def the best/most effective way to change. thank you :+)
