Long & Short form Content

What if I only consume content that is over 20 minutes in length?

This would remove most social media, and only allow part of YouTube to exist.

Would this make me more or less calm?

Would this make me feel like I have more or less time in the day?

I’ve been experimenting with this day-to-day. I notice the days when I consume more short form content (IG Reels, TikTok, etc), I feel time has slipped away.

On the days when I’m consuming parts of an audiobook, the day feels more..fulfilled?

As I was writing this, I was thinking about flashcards. Technically one could argue they are short form content, but part of a broader context.

So perhaps that is why long form content feels better, it’s contextually easier to tie into the canon of a larger goal.

(Maybe this is why TV Series style things are so addicting? It’s comforting to have a massive cannon of short form content.)
