Check the bookmarked web pages you’ve saved on your phone (or tablet or computer). Do you remember why you saved a certain page? Will you go back to that webpage again?
When I was planning art classes, I’d spend evenings scrolling through the internet, bookmarking many websites and then going back to them on another day to find activities I’d like to use.
I also bookmark recipes that I want to try, places I want to visit, subjects I want to learn more about, etc. When the hard drive on my computer crashed earlier this year, I lost the pages I had bookmarked … and I didn’t miss them.
This is a great activity to do if you are sitting in a doctor’s waiting room or you are waiting for you car’s oil to be changed. Work on your computer while you are at home and scroll through your phone when you are out.
