Today was so nice being able to sleep in and take advantage of late start. I always feel like having late start makes my Thursday’s so much better just because I’m moving at a slower pace. Overall, I did pretty well with practicing all my virtues, I didn’t have trouble with any of them today. The one I was mainly focusing on was moderation. I was practicing moderation by putting myself on a strict schedule with technology, specifically with my phone. I feel like I’m constantly on my phone, scrolling through social media, while I could be knocking out some homework. I start to feel guilty after watching Tik Tok’s for hours on end, and it’s not like I get anything out of being on social media. So, I have started setting alarms with about three minute intervals to force myself to get off my phone. These alarms are set at night because this is when I want to get my homework done so I’m not working all night. I intentionally didn’t set my alarms right after school, because I make time for myself to rest for about an hour or so, and unfortunately, being on my phone can be somewhat relaxing. On the good side, the alarms successfully worked, and I got all of my homework done before 9pm :)))

Late start was so nice! Also, I really like the idea of moderation of with technology. I feel like that could be something that I could practice moderation with more.
Having a three minute timer in order to practice moderation on your phone is a really good idea! That also sounds like it would be difficult to do so good for you for keeping up with it! I also struggle with getting distracted on my phone when I’m trying do homework, so I’ll definately consider that strategy.
Hey Kate, I’m glad to hear that you have been successful with your virtues! I agree that social media and phones/ technology in general can be so distracting so it is best to minimize time spent using them. Keep up the success!
