We LOVE technology and all the conveinence it offers. But we also know it can be a distraction from the important things in life. The key thing is balance. I have to remember #12 as I spend many many nights working online, but I also found that is the most productive times for me….I know several people that have the same problem…
I found this online and thought it would be fun to share
12-Step Internet Recovery Program:
1) I will have a cup of coffee in the morning and read my newspaper like I
used to, before the Internet.
2) I will eat breakfast with a knife and fork and not with one hand typing.
3) I will get dressed before noon.
4) I will make an attempt to clean the house, wash clothes, and plan dinner
before even thinking of the Internet.
5) I will sit down and write a letter to those unfortunate few friends and
family that are Internet-deprived.
6) I will call someone on the phone who I cannot contact via the Internet.
7) I will read a book…if I still remember how.
8) I will listen to those around me and their needs and stop telling them to
turn the TV down so I can hear the music on the Internet.
9) I will not be tempted during TV commercials to check for email.
10) I will try and get out of the house at least once a week, if it is
necessary or not.
11) I will remember that my bank is not forgiving if I forget to balance my
checkbook because I was too busy on the Internet.
12) Last, but not least, I will remember that I must go to bed sometime …
and the Internet will always be there tomorrow!
How do you balance technology and life? Do you have think you have an internet addiction?
