PROBLEM: My computer sucks me in. I just want to spend a bit of time relaxing so I play Tetris or check Facebook and next thing I know an hour has passed.

SOLUTION: Decide ahead of time how much time you want to spend relaxing in front of your computer.  Then set a timer. The “ding” of the timer allows you to recognize the passage of time.

HINT: It can be helpful to set the timer for smaller chunks of time (10min.). You can chunk your time into beginning, middle, and end or play time then 10 min. warning.
