Reddit is pre much the only social media I still spend time on. Reddit is great for niche communities but it's also a rabbit hole which might steal your attention for hours if you let it. Here are some tips on reducing unnecessary browsing, while still reaping the benefits of using Reddit

I use LeechBlock to block the frontpage and any other unecessary pages so I can only access subreddits, and post comments. Here's my domain list:

In case you want to block specific subreddits you can add them to Block Set 2. This is important since block sets are applied sequentially, it won't work if you add them to Block Set 1.

If you're a poweruser like me you're probably already using RES. If not, try it out, it's great! Here are some RES tricks to see less posts

If you're already using RSS reader I'd just recommend putting your favorite subreddits there, and getting like the 2 top voted posts every week. This way you get the interesting stuff but don't have to do any scrolling on Reddit.
