Oh, my! Have you been spying on me. I have been wasting time checking this and that online. Then I open my game app and lose another hour. Meanwhile several lovely books sit beside me, waving at me for their attention.

I remember when I used to devour a book a day. Where has that habit gone? Now, I won’t even sign up for the yearly book reading challenges, knowing my goal will go unmet. Ridiculous!

This article was just the wake-up call I needed. I need to put brakes on this mindless habit. Yes, as a writer I have social media requirements, but for goodness sake, I need to keep my scrolling habit limited to those.

Okay, starting today I’m taking my life back!
