Writing a Nasty Comment: 22 Better Uses of Your Time

It can be easy to want to retaliate when you see something you disagree with online. But when we react out of anger, we often end up in a keyboard battle with a total stranger, and everything can very quickly become a lot worse. Trying to catch ourselves in the midst of an angry outburst can be really tough as emotions often run so high, but nevertheless it is always better to try to not fight fire with fire in these kinds of situations. 

So, in order to distract yourself from the potential of a keyboard battle, here are some better uses of your time and keep your mind off of getting into an online argument. 

  1. Read a book
  2. Watch a YouTube video 
  3. Meditate
  4. Call your friends
  5. Take an online quiz 
  6. Go for a walk
  7. Play a game 
  8. Do some exercise 
  9. Leave a nice comment on something else
  10. Scroll your phone 
  11. Write the comment down, but just in your Notes section on your phone, and then delete it 
  12. Do a little online shopping 
  13. Walk the dog – if you have one 
  14. Take a shower 
  15. Write in a gratitude journal 
  16. Bake a cake 
  17. Draw or paint something 
  18. Tidy your room
  19. Clear out your wardrobe 
  20. Watch a movie or your favourite TV show
  21. Plan what your going to have for dinner 
  22. Do literally anything that isn’t getting angry online
