February Challenge: No social media, get writing done!

January was a bit of a loss for me with travel and illness and just goofing off.  I have a lot of things coming up in March, so I need to get things knocked off before then.  February is the perfect month for challenges because it is the shortest month.

I need more focus and one of the things that helps me focus is not getting little hits from Twitter or Reddit.


No playing with my phone in the morning before I get up.  I get up.  I start my day.

No messing with twitter etc. while I am waiting for things.  Instead I force myself to contend with my thoughts.

When I work at work, I start work.  I will write for at least an hour every day, first thing when I get on my computer (9am M/W/F, possibly earlier T/Th).

I will update you with the link loves.

Wish me luck!

    Sounds like a plan! All the best of luck! (And this is inspiring me to make a few rules and boundaries for myself too; so thank you!)

    I hope you are successful! I don’t so much have a social media problem as an internet problem. Haven’t felt committed enough to really do anything about it yet, but I probably should.

      Not getting off to a great start because I had a doctors appointment and the kids have a snow day (it is not snowing). But soon I will actually start work. After I eat something…

    Best of luck! I hope this will yield the results that you need and want.

    I just deleted insta from my phone because it was eating data and feeding insomnia. Next I’ll move into my office and become a hermit, probably.

    Good luck with your focus!

    Deciding. Then hermit-ing. And thank you for the support of my similar plan which has lots of differences in topics …. mine is not writing. SUPPORT TO YOU ALL!

    I quit twitter a month ago. You can do it too!

    OMG. The scrolling is just killing me. It needs to stop. It was much easier to consume bite sized chunks from blogs and then walk away. So so much time wasted.

    Good luck. Have a productive month. Send me strength to do the same.

    […] The challenge has gotten to a rocky start.  Feb 1 I’d gotten in late the night before because of travel delays and I started the day with a doctors appointment including lab work.  (The doctor suspects anemia over perimenapause but my blood work doesn’t show anemia.  My cholesterol is down to normal levels — I attribute this to exercise!  She’s having me go back on a multivitamin and wants me to start a headache log and let her know if I get another really short cycle.  Also I learned about colonoscopies and their alternatives.)
