Every morning I open youtube just to frown at the bad recommendations and not watch any of them. This ceremony reconfirms my commitments and prepares me for a productive day.

@faun I have poor impulse control, so I have blocked the YouTube homepage and the sidebar recommendations.

@stephen I do recommend the method of fostering a sense of contempt for it. Dwell on how incipid it is until you don't enjoy it any more.

For instance, today a video came up about a new battery advance and all I could think about was how offensive it was that there was no textual transcript, that this guy was doing youtube videos instead of blogs. I left in disgust. That was the only video I looked at this morning.
