5 Reasons Why You Should Get Off Your Computer

The internet is a powerful tool. However, it is also a relatively new tool for human kind. Many people aren't aware of just how much time they spend using the internet. Like watching TV, the internet can become numbing, it can put you into a bit of a daze, and it can sap up your time fast. There is a million ways to justify the need to be on the internet and even to be wasting time but is being on the computer for so much time really healthy for us?

This blog is mostly about pornography addiction but the internet in general can be a time waster too so here is a list for why you should find a way to limit your time on the computer in general.

1. Top reason for getting off your computer is because your time, is actually your life. It's easy to forget but all the minutes and hours you spend feeling bored and lazy are actually grains of sand in a big hour glass that represents your remaining life experience. It's not a pleasant thought, but when you are actively trying to blow an hour of time, you are actually asking to have one less hour of your life. Think about time as if you have a limited amount, because you do. Using the internet to blow your time is like being in the hospital and asking the doctor to pull your life support because your bored. There's no difference in wasting your time now and wasting your time when your minutes from death; in the end you experienced less of life because of it.

2. Second reason to get off your computer is because it's possible for you to participate and experience your life, right now, in this very moment. Despite your mind's many excuses for why you have to wait for this or that, you can take action in this very moment to pursue your desires in reality instead of fantasy. You can stand up and walk away from reading this post and go do something meaningful. You have the power to experience life right now.

3. Third reason is that you can do something right now that you will remember on your death bed. You can do something right now that will last with you and inspire you for the rest of your life. You might think that this is impossible but it's not. In a brief, bright moment you can do something right now to change the course of your entire life. I guarantee that when you are close to death and your time is up, you won't be reminiscing about anything you saw on a computer monitor.

4. Fourth reason is real life interaction with people. I'll be honest here. I'm one of the most introverted guys you can meet. 99 percent of my interactions with people are meaningless to me and in most cases I'd much rather stare straight ahead and ignore people than to say hi and enjoy a smile. However, if I recall any of my best memories in my life, the common factor is that they are shared moments. Even if some of the people from those memories aren't around anymore, the memory and meaning of my experience with them stays.

5. Finally, I want to say something that will relate with some of you and not so much with the rest of you. I used to have very poor self-esteem. The internet provided a haven for me. I was able to hide from the world and avoid experiencing my low self-esteem in the real world. If this sounds familiar, you need to think long and hard about whether or not you want to live the rest of your life like this. It's easy to think that hiding from your problems and your fears is the best option. Truthfully, you're not hiding. You can't hide. You exist and consequently your chance to experience this universe is going to slowly slip away whether you hide behind a computer or not. Stop pretending that you can hide from life and learn how to face your fears. Everyone can learn to be brave.
