Technology isn’t bugging me

I recently took steps to distance myself from the internet and since then I feel much better about things. My phone has pissed me off significantly less than it used to. It is probably just mindset but I’ll take that.

It’s easy to jump on technology and blame it for making us unhappy but it’s only because we let it. We can also use it to make our lives easier and although it can take some time and effort to initially set things up it can make it better.

Most apps and social networks have settings that can be tweaked to suit you and there are also add-ons to the more popular web browsers to filter the crap out.

With all this in place, we can make the internet great for ourselves again.
