4 Simple Tips to Simplify Your Time Online.

Ever feel distracted online, like you're being pulled in 5 different directions, at the same time? You successfully visit (more than 5) sites only to hit the red X at the end of 3 hours & realize that you haven't really accomplished much.

Does the Google homepage search box stare you in the face, demanding you to enter something...anything? Your mind flips through a rolodex of keywords, until something semi-interesting pops up.
Ooh...Leftover chicken recipes!

Ever open a new account & totally forget about it? Or maybe, you use it a little while & then feel obligated to use it more often...

Sounding familiar?
Try the following tips to simplify your time online:
Prioritize & Focus
What do you need to get done online? How much time does it take? With those answers, set a deadline for yourself, DO IT, and be done with it.
Consider which online accounts you like & use regularly, and the ones you don't.
 Get rid of unused/non-user friendly/time-wasting accounts.
If you have followers/friends/subscribers, announce that you're moving on (before you leave obviously), and perhaps, another way you can be reached online.

If you have any additional tips, feel free to share them in a message below.

I smiled reading this. Last year I did a cleanse to simplify the time I spend online and how I use the internet. I no longer use facebook.
But I still feel this need to search for something when Google is staring me in the face lol and at times get distracted with multiple pages open at once just like you describe here lol. Gotta work on that!!!
