May habit

It is already May, which means I’m going to try to add a new good habit to my increasingly-hit-and-miss collection of them.

Social media seems like a good thing to get under control, since it sucks away both time and morale. I will need lots of both this month, since my hopes of my workload easing up a bit this month are dashed, and on top of that I’m in a jury pool. (They say work-related excuses will not get you out of serving, but perhaps a literal nervous breakdown would do it.)

Anyway, the habit is to stop looking at social media on my computer at all, and to keep my phone out of my face until noon, at least (no need to be super-strict on the time, I guess; the habit I want to establish is simply to NOT pick the thing up first thing in the morning). This is a very lame resolution/habit and really should not be hard.
