Screen time, addictions and motivations.

So, screen time has been an issue in our house lately. Too much of it, in other words. This links in with addictions and motivations, as well. 

Vic and I are addicted to our screens. Him, games and videos; me, Facebook and other forums. It seems like the first thing we do in the morning and the last thing at night. To remedy, this I have been making sure that if I pick up my iPad, especially in the morning or evening, that the first thing I do is read the Bible, or one of the other books I have on it. Also, I have my Bible by the bed instead of the iPad, and some books from the library in the living room, so I've been spending more time reading those instead of getting on the Internet.

I've joined a facebook exercise challenge and since the weather is nice, Sarah has been wanting to ride in her stroller, so we have been getting out more and getting a lot of exercise. Going to the park helps too. Feeling better now, because of the exercise, as well as morning sickness having moved on finally, has been helpful in getting me off my butt, off the iPad, and into doing some spring cleaning.

See how they are all related? Making the effort to change my bad habits and replacing them with good ones, has raised more motivation to get more done and helped me be a bit less lazy. I'm still working on that part, though.

Part of my motivation to stick with getting more exercise is wanting to have a good healthy body to push this baby girl out later this summer. Plus, I feel better.

Anyway, that's all for now.
