Comments are not a distraction
They are an interaction
Between you and me and
From me to you
Thanks for all of your kind and witty comments!!
Notification sounds, bubbles, pop up messages, can be a distraction (for me) [my partner though can have hundreds of unread mail with no problem].
So I’ve turned off email sounds, and twitter pop up notices, Facebook and WordPress notices and I’m much less anxious because I have time to read and/or comment.
HOWEVER-now I read more… but on my phone and not a book. A wise woman asked me if I could go for a few hours without my phone, and the answer is yes, but……
If I don’t have a plan or too anxious or depressed or bored, instead of picking up a book, I pick up my phone and search for connections or trouble… ha… but more likely games on my phone… spider solitaire, mahjong (not matching).
So now I need to schedule time with myself to do other things…. but I’m not an outdoor person. I’ll get there, but for now….
Even no notifications are a distraction.
