I am on a path currently of mapping my own desires, wants, perceived needs, etc… To truly understand where my actions come from, habits, and otherwise.
This became alarming, as I realized recently my desire for social connection rather than my goals was drastically spiking. I realized, that- my desire for certain things started spiking when the flow of information from social media spiked as well.
I believe our desires and wants, are much less a decision of our willpower, yet starting at the decision of the environment we put ourselves in and the information we consume. Which ultimately a product of our habits.
What are some of the ways you all log the amount of time spent on each site? I’d love to know exactly how much time I spend ‘surfing’ I feel it’s something as soon as I know, I’ll need to greatly reduce. Substituting social connection for social information is a mute point in the meaning of my life, and it’s gotta go- or at least be greatly reduced.
