How to Stop Wasting Time Online: My Proven 5 Step Strategy

How to Stop Wasting Time Online: My Proven 5 Step Strategy

Stop Wasting Time Online (Fight Your YouTube Addiction)

Somewhat regrettably, I have wasted many miserable years of my life, wasting time online. In this article, I will show you how I eventually brought an end to this madness—setting myself free!

Before that happens, rank yourself on a scale of 1–10 based on how well this reflects you:

Due to the endless streams of distractions, wasting time online is seemingly inevitable for me. Accordingly, I have difficulty trying to exercise discipline so I can pursue greater things in life.

For example, as soon as I finish reading an article/watching a video, I am immediately tempted by the related content. Similarly, my feed is continuously begging for my bounded attention. I, therefore, waste countless hours binging on online content, which ultimately wrecks my life.

If this brief description sounds like you, then I would like to invite you to at least try my system. That is to say, give it a mere test run before reviewing the results.

How to Save Your Time: The Most Powerful Planning Routine

How to Save Your Time: The Most Powerful Planning Routine

Why a Planning Routine (& Reviewing) is Important

How effective is a planning routine, and why is planning important? For instance, you may feel busy enough with whatever system you are currently using. Nevertheless, this does not mean that your time is being spent meaningfully.

The Power of Planning How You Want Your Life to Go

Firstly, if you want to spend your time productively, you must be proactive with your time. On the contrary, if you are reactive—letting your inbox dictate your actions—you’re doing it wrong.

That is to say, chase the opportunity rather than letting distractions chase you. It is, unless you proactively chase opportunity, the case that the opportunity cannot be trusted to come after you.

Just making that clear.

So, the evident solution is to be deliberate and plan your time out carefully: incorporate a planning routine in your life (which I will soon discuss).

You Know Less About Last Night Than You Think

As we all know, sleep is paramount for a happy, healthy, and productive lifestyle. Alas, it is equally obscure to us, since we’re not really fully conscious when we engage in such activity. This problematic reality, though, can be changed with the help of a sleep tracking smartwatch!

Otherwise, you are left guessing how long you slept based on when you got into bed and when you awoke. Obviously, this will produce inevitable inaccuracies regarding the under/overestimation of the time it takes for you to get to sleep.

Make sure that you get enough good sleep

Sure, while you could take the average time (about fourteen minutes or so), it’s merely an average. In other words, everyone is different, so you need to find out your sleep patterns specifically.

Moreover, even if you can accurately estimate how long you’ve slept, that’s still not the whole story. For instance, there is no concrete indication of your quality of sleep.

Even if you get plenty of time in bed, that does not mean that your sleep quality is optimal.

Sleep stages—the phases of sleep we go through each night—also play a key role in all of this. And it’s important that you have an awareness of it.

Before we begin looking at a sleep tracking smartwatch, let’s first see how they can benefit you.

55 Productive Things to Do in 2019 (The Best of 2018)

55 Productive Things to Do in 2019 (The Best of 2018)

Make Your New Year’s Resolutions Count

I do not subscribe to the concept of embracing these rare “new year’s resolutions” (because these annual promises don’t work). In spite of that, you might as well take advantage of the moment as an opportunity to exceed 2018’s efforts. And what better way to do that than by establishing an assortment of productive things to do this year?

Don't waste your time and make sure you have a list of productive things to do in 2019

For you see, this year, you’re going to become more productive than ever. In order to do that, you can use the following list of productive things to do as mere inspiration.

Perhaps you would want to create a grand to-do list outlining all the achievements that you wish to make. For example, these might include:

  • Actionable pieces (so, productive things for you to do)
  • Long-term goals that help you achieve what you want in life (such as better social skills)
  • Commitment to routines as well as new habits
  • Commitment to breaking detrimental habits

Furthermore, the high-achiever to desires to out-do their previous last year’s self by a factor of 30. Accordingly, they must go one step further: treat their annual goals as a minimum, and not hesitating to pursue any more important tasks that come their way.

Are you a high-achiever?

If you answer ‘no’, I would advise you to use 2019 as a time to change; see it as if it is to be a monumental turning point in your life!

So, let us look back in the Cryptic Butter archive for actionable, productive things you can do in 2019…
