So about a week ago, I issued a challenge of sorts. You were dared to do a little investigative soul searching. I dared you to find something that would feed your spirit and then immerse yourself in it. I hope you tried something new and I hope you enjoyed yourself. Maybe even found out something new about yourself.
I took the challenge myself and thanks to a good friend’s lead I decided to uninstall the Facebook app from my phone. I found myself aimlessly scrolling…liking this or that and maybe commenting on something here and there. But before I knew it I had spent 15-20 minutes doing this aimless scrolling. Huh…what the heck, what an incredible waste of time. I decided that I was going to give it a try and pulled the Facebook mobile plug 2 days ago and I’m so happy I did it.
Now I find myself reaching for my phone and thinking that I really don’t need it for anything. It’s so eye-opening to see how much I’ve been wrapped up in the routine of social media. I’ve also edited the notification settings on the other social media outlets I use so that I will only engage with those when I feel like I want to, not when the little birdie pops up in my notifications screen.
It’s so hard to believe that a week ago I couldn’t imagine possibly missing something on social media and now I’m already excited about only connecting with social media on my terms. I’m excited to see what other “time sucks” I’m able to eliminate in the coming weeks! This is exciting stuff, people, exciting stuff!!
