I recently had to use this approach with my YouTube binge-watching. I was watching it constantly. I've gone in and out of YouTube binging for years, but most recently I realized how anxious it was making me. I told myself I was using it for business research, but I found myself unable to stop watching. Going from one so-called expert to the next. I couldn't stop. And then I realized why it was making me so anxious. I was watching other people be in flow, getting their sh$! done while I wasn't.

So I had to pull back from YouTube. For a month, minimum. The goal was to get back in flow. Take action on what I needed to do. Stop procrastinating by watching others do what they needed to do, and get my own sh$! done.

And it's working. I've settled down. I'm more focused. And for the moment, I'm making things happen.

What's your YouTube? TikTok, IG, hanging out with friends, talking on the phone, Netflix? When you figure it out try pulling it back and seeing if that can help you take things forward.
