Turn off your computer and go out side. Enjoy the fresh warm summer air flowing through your hair; enjoy the feeling of warmth from the sun on your skin!! Best of luck to you.

Find a hobby which does not require a computer.Try doing sport, read, exercise, keep a diary.  Go down to the library & find a good book. By trying something new it is a great way to meet new people.

It is a chore! I am in the same position, but it is harder for me because I am sick in bed most days. :( I have to make an effort to simply go sit in the sun, read a book for at least 20 minutes, or focus on some other activity like crafting.

I find a good way to make yourself aware of how long you've been on the computer is having a timer nearby. Set it for half an hour, 40 minutes, or an hour, and when it goes off, no matter what you are doing, WALK AWAY from the computer! Make yourself do something else for the next 20-30 minutes! You'll find you have a much more rounded, complete life when you do!

Switch your internet connection off.  Unplug your computer and modile devises and iPads and Books (Apple or chrome).  Log out of social media and you tube.  Distract yourself for a fews and do something fun or productive.  When switch back on everything an go on the internet after some time away, it seems to be pretty boring.  I do it often.  I go back online and get bored cos there is nothing to do.  No updates etc.....
