I have a terrible tendency to come home after work and climb into bed with the laptop. I will spend hours on the internet, not get chores done, and end up going to sleep way later than intended. Also, on the weekend I have a tendency to get on the internet the second my eyes open and while away the weekends, sometimes not even getting out of bed until hours after I have woken. Finally, some weekday mornings I end up late for work because I do too much non-essential internet browsing while getting ready.
Any ideas on how to stop this habit? I have already tried tons of software that blocks time-wasting sites. The problem is that after a few days, I just uninstall the software or use other workarounds. I think what might actually be ideal is leaving the laptop in my car (I don’t have a desktop) when I get home from work. That way getting onto the internet requires quite a bit more work than just a few keystrokes to disable software, and the evening is spent more productively. Theft aside, is that feasible temperature-wise, living in Georgia?
Another thought I had was putting the laptop in my closet on a high shelf as soon as I get home.
Any other ideas?
