    Staying off screens in the morning, until I'm dressed and ready for the day, has been another big help. What a great challenge this is.

    Unfortunately, last night I worked late and watched some YouTube as I did so. That seems to be a consistent problem. Back to 0.

    i stayed today off screen from 4am to 2pm of waking hours, plus overnighter,
    i find it important to keep it within some limits, otherwise... things are not so good

    but i can't find consistent hours at it, is it ok to participate just by reporting
    from time to time about delimiting the screen time "on the fly"?

    I am not sure what you’re asking, nor what problem you’re trying to solve. Could you elaborate it a bit? Would help me to give you a proper reply. Normally I encourage people to modify challenges if that increases their probability of success. :)

    11/30. A few minutes after but nothing serious.

    Reset. Couldn’t resist the task of solving a crypto challenge. Solved it 30 min after my deadline.

    Anyhow, this challenge makes a huge difference for me anyway, since going to bed a bit too late once every two weeks is a lot better compared with going to bed too late every day.

    so basically - my problem is - when i forget myself and spend too much time with the computer then i'm just wasting time, and also some clarity in my thinking/ creativity(that's what i observed in myself), but trying fix timing is just doesn't work for me, i guess maybe this challenge per say is not for me... but thanks for reply anyway.

    i can't quantify it, but i need to just keep mindful not to stay on screen for more then it's reasonable - cheers

    Ok, so if I understand it correctly, you would like a challenge that could save you from binging screen time but not a challenge that forces you to stop at a certain time?

    TangoTao, I totally feel the same way about wasting time on the computer. (Other things can have the same effect, for example, TV.) Differently people probably need to address this problem in different ways, based on their schedules, lifestyles, psychology, etc.

    If you're interested, Nir Eyal's recent book Indistractable might have ideas that you'd find helpful.

    Good luck!
