What are your biggest time wasters?

FreeCurlsFreeCurls Posts: 4,408Registered Users
Lately I've noticed how much time I spend on things that are really time wasters and it's amazing to realize just how much time I spend merely WASTING time (should I cue that DMB song here? :)) I was wondering, what are your biggest time wasters and what would your replace that activity with if you chose to?

Mine are:
Internet
TV
Telephone

I should replace them with more hobbies, more exercise and maybe take up letter-writing again. I used to write letters a lot when I chose to live without a telephone for a year. It was a nice way to communicate. It almost felt more personal.

    Internet, more specifically this site.
    Fat does not make you fat. It's actually pretty important.

    Me to

    ideally I would like to say I would replace it with exercise but :roll: not sure if that would happen. Although I deffenetly could use it. It's not that I don't like to exercise because I do it's just the act of getting up and starting but once I do I enjoy it and feel better about myself

    Me too.

    At work - getting more work done.

    At home - cleaning, cooking, taking better care of my house and my husband.

    The internet at work, I really have no idea how I made it thru a working day without dropping dead from boredom when I had no access to the internet.

    At home a combo of the tv and the internet, those two can suck up time faster than anything.

    If we're counting reading as a hobby, then definitely my biggest timewaster is the internet.

    And like Lisa, I have no idea how I got through a workday without dying of boredom. Vive le internet!

    After my dad died, my mom made a rule that she couldn't pick up a book until after 5:00, because otherwise she'd spend the whole day reading. :D

    I should make a rule that I can't log onto the internet until after the kids go to bed, because that's my big time-waster.

    I can stay off the internet as long as I don't pick up my laptop. If I have to look something up or anything, though...it's all over. Once I get started, it's like crack.

    I'm not online a lot in the evenings or on most weekends simply because HOURS would go by with me not accomplishing anything.

    That's me as well...I get so side tracked and end up not even looking up what I originally signed on to look up...lol :lol:
