Can’t seem to focus on doing things that you have to do during the day?
If you find yourself constantly making excuses to not get things done (like not going to the gym), here’s a quick and easy trick to fix that.
It’s simple and only takes about 5 seconds: during the hours that you’re trying to be productive, click the “Log Out” button of the social media websites you visit most frequently whether it’s on your computer or your smartphone.
Yes, I’m basically calling you out and saying that you spend too much time on sites like Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. Because fact of the matter is that we are all guilty of wasting a lot of time lurking on these sites.
Ever find yourself checking your Facebook news feed every 5 minutes even though there’s really nothing new and interesting 99% of the time? And when you do check it do you actually interact with people’s statuses, pictures, etc., or are you just lurking? Because if you’re just scrolling through, then you’re wasting away your life.
The reason why this trick works is simple – people are used to seeing their social media feeds as soon as they open up the sites/apps. By logging out, you will have second thoughts on whether you want to actually spend the extra time typing in your login information. And guess what? Humans are lazy. If we realize that we have to spend more time and effort typing in our username and password, then we are less inclined to care about checking our social media feeds. It’s the reason why a lot of college students deactivate their Facebook accounts during Finals week.
Will this work every single time? No, of course not. We’re humans, not robots. But trust me, you’ll notice a significant difference in your productivity level just by logging out of your social media apps. Try it out and see for yourself.
