Tumblr - January 24th 2015, 08:32 PM

I seriously have an addiction to Tumblr. I'm always on, and I have it open on there different platforms at all times. My Laptop, my iPad, and my cell. I'm not even sure why. I really should cut down though, because it does get in the way of my house work. I only really put it down when Ava is up from her nap and when she wants to play. OH well.

Maybe you can start using Tumblr as a reward for getting your tasks done! You can log out of the app on these platforms and only allow yourself to login once x, y, and z is done. It'll be hard to train at first, as you're used to simply always being on, but this would help you be a lot more productive.

Tumblr is indeed a cool website and I understand that it can get quite addicting. I would say a good way to recover from this addiction is to allocate time, prioritizing your daily tasks with the use of an agenda or a planner of some sort. By using an agenda/planner, you are able to clearly see how much time you are dedicating to each task and see where you need to spend more or less time in. I hope this helps and wish you all the very best!

Hi Adelaide,

I suggest you log out of Tumblr on your phone and iPad.
Also, it could help to install a program where you can block certain websites form being accessed during certain times.
For instance, I have a program on my mac (they are also available for Windows and the free versions work great) that I have created a "black list" with. The black list has this website as well as many others that I get distracted by when trying to complete my academic necessities. I then set the amount of time I want them blocked for and hit the "start" button. Then I am unable to access the websites with any web browser on my computer.
There are not applications available for iPad's that do this because of restrictions by Apple but a work around could be restricting Safari (Settings, General, Restrictions, Enable Restrictions, type four digit passcode, tap Safari (will switch from on to off). You can then remove the Tumblr app from your home screen.
Then you can use Tumblr as a reward. Set the program for the amount of time you want to do housework ie. a half hour or an hour and then when you are back at your laptop, it will be unlocked.
Hope this helps in some way.
Take care.
