How Do I Learn To Stay Off The Internet

How do I learn things off the internet?

I am learning programming to. And I think you should read a book in your own language and set a few goals for example i am learning How to program a arduino and I want to make a sentry with a bb gun.After you know the language a little you can just play around and try some stuff.WHEN YOU ARE LEARNING WITH A BOOK MAKE THE HOMEWORK AND DONT GO TO MUCH TO SITES LIKE Stack Overflow.

Should I get off the internet?

Unless you can control your usage of internet you should not indulge in it. Just tell yourself that you do not want to regret at the end of the year by not doing your best. By the way for short breaks you can watch some silly soaps on the TV. They are so disgusting that within minutes you will run to your books .

How do you blow off steam when someone is wrong on the Internet?

Honestly, if it's important enough to me, sometimes I think about how to fix the problem in a larger sense.  Usually when someone is wrong on the internet they're not the only one with the views they have or the wrong approach that they have. I think about what larger problem that person is a symptom of and try to think of ways to combat that problem overall.  Then again, when I have problems with people being wrong on the internet it is not only because people are factually incorrect (but that can be a part of it) but because they're also assholes.  So I try to come up with ways to combat assholes in life overall.  Then next time (there will always be a next time you meet assholes) you'll either have ways to get less pissed and waste less of your own time, or ways to defeat them in argument (only if you are fairly confident you can, or else it's better to walk away), or ways to combat the problem indirectly such as with advocacy or convincing people to be allies on your cause.None of this is entirely satisfactory when I'm really pissed but it helps me blow off some of the steam.

How would you live without internet for a week?

I would visit all the places I want to in the world, but I would backpack, and live with locals to give it a more personal feel. I would do the whole boho thing, and go to Coachella, and other music festivals, just relx in a field full of swaying grass watching the sunrise, and then camping under the stars watching it set. I would go to Hawaii, and do the whole beach thing, lazing in a hammock all day, and I would also learn how to scuba-dive in Australia. Without the internet, I would do a lot, without being distracted and caught up in the rush of day to day life. It would give me time to be just me, and take life at my own pace, and do the things I want to do, not what I am expected to do:)

How do you stay away from bad internet habits and purely use it for study or research?

Step 1: Out of sight; out of mind.I've found the most effective way is to remove the thing from your vision and replace it with something constructive. For example, removing a bookmark for Facebook from your browser or deleting the app off your home screen on your phone. This way you don’t need to make a dramatic post about how you’re “deleting your Facebook account!”, but it’s gone from view. (Obviously this applies to other websites, apps, games, etc. too.)I got rid of browser bookmark and home screen shortcut for Facebook, and I haven't missed it. I rarely go on Facebook now and never want to. However, I replaced Facebook with Pocket (an app that is nice for reading articles) and Quora. These aren't meant to put me at optimum productivity, but they're a lot better than Facebook, and they can bring real value.Step 2: Cultivating a state of mind.As I alluded to above, I try to find “better” ways to use my time. Realize you have a lot of control over your interests and exercise that control. Slowly shift your interests in leisure and entertainment toward your research area (maybe you want some TED Talks about it) or skills that you want to learn. Do fun things you want to do/learn: not what your job/class specifically requires you to do.Some other (less organized) thoughts…There are more two things I’d like to mention that I think get us distracted: no plan and two monitors (weird, I know).First, the plan.If you don’t have a well defined plan, whatever you’re working on is “that thing”. It’s not a specific, bite-sized problem. So your rationale can become something like “well, I can’t get it done today anyway.” Splitting your problem into chunks that take an hour or two at most can be very helpful in staying focused and being more efficient.Now, why do I mention the number of monitors you have?About a year ago, I switched from two 24″ monitors to one 27″ ultrawide monitor. I used to keep something on both screens all the time because why not? Often this would be two different parts of a project or one monitor with just a music player…I’m sure you know how it goes.Since switching, I have room to fit two full sized windows comfortably. Everything is directly in front of me: no angled monitors and swiveling my head back and forth. (Plus I have more desk space!) I’m sure this is not an option for everyone, but I thought it’s worth mentioning. Maybe just turn one of your monitors off for a couple days and see what happens.
