Have you ever gone on Facebbok just to “quickly check in” something, and then you find yourself, 3 hours latter, falling into a rabbit hall of wasting all your free time. You may start off reading a nice story, or even reading the news, but end up wasting hours watching kittens and puppies on YouTube. Be disciplined about how you use your time. Give yourself time to have fun, but don’t let it take over. This gets even worse if you use FB to network and grow your business as well – up until recently I could spend half a day scrolling and commenting.
A nice hack to use is the Pomodoro technique
– basically a set timer to break down work into intervals, traditionally 15-25 minutes in length, separated by short breaks. Set your Facebook break for 15 min, and then move on.
