Freedom from online

I am easily distracted when online.


I guess I’m not alone in this.


I’m sure I’m not.


If I have something to write or do about the house my favourite way to do it is by running Freedom. It’s a small and simple application that does one thing: it blocks your internet connection for a time of your choosing.  As I write this, I have blocked the internet for twenty minutes.


I feel relieved. I can’t access Facebook chat. I can’t check twitter or email. I can’t check my messages on the multitude of sites I’m a member of. I can’t watch youtube videos. I can’t check check check.  


Blessed stillness.


Get it.
