Time to Detox: The Devil of Social Media
Are you serious, I just wasted the last 20 minutes scrolling through social media, really? Come on, Amanda.
That morning I deactivated my Facebook and deleted all social media apps from my phone. Social media wasn’t only hijacking me of my time, but it was also hijacking my mind. I forgot about my own life because I allowed myself to get so caught up in what other people were doing!
During the time of deactivation my life was a lot quieter. I didn’t feel the need to spend time checking my notifications because the notifications from Facebook didn’t exist. I was able to focus on the here and now.
After a week, I reactivated Facebook and downloaded all the social media apps with caution. I turned off my notifications, I made it more work for me to get to my social media apps by placing them on my secondary page, and I made sure I was in the right mindset.
If you’re feeling overwhelmed lately. It may be time to take a step back and give yourself a social media detox.
