this post a couple of weeks ago? Well, one of the comments on the post had a link to some tips as to how to get over my "book slump" and was really helpful. I think part of it was that I was probably a bit depressed and when that happens I tend to get into a funk and that funk tends to affect my reading. Another part of the fact that I couldn't get into my books was due to the fact that I had become seriously addicted to a bunch of games on Facebook, which I have quit cold turkey on Thursday. And quite honestly, I feel much less stress by being not playing them. I can't say what games I will go back to and for how long it will be, but if I do go back, it will be much fewer games than the four that I was going to on a regular basis.
What did find, at least in the first day, is that I was picking up a book instead of the computer for my entertainment, but yesterday evening and this (Saturday) morning, I found myself trolling the internet trying to find something that would occupy my mind for longer than a few seconds. I will see what happens in the coming days.
This is all to say that I am feeling way less stress and less aggravated when it comes to my computer and realizing how much I do love reading, even if it is just a sports magazine. I realize how hard it is to give up the games, but I think that by going cold turkey for at least a while, I can hopefully find some balance between my online life and my life offline.
