I’ve set limits on my general internet usage, which is similar to what I did with e-mail a while back. I actual felt less violence than when I limited e-mail or even when the internet broke on me for a while. Perhaps this was because I managed to distract myself by hanging out with a friend and filming for the greater part of the day.
There is a lot I need to do these days and limiting the amount of time I waste on the internet will certainly help me finish those things.
Currently, here is the plan: I get to check my e-mail once in the morning, but only for job alerts. I get to check facebook at 12:30 or later for posting stuff on my fan page or responding to fans. I then do not get to go on the internet again until 5:00PM. After that, I’m pretty much free to do what I want, but I may restrict that to a few hours of general browsing.
This Friday I’ll review and change the limits as necessary.
