I love technology so this is a hard one to write.
I am an early adopter. I have many regrets about the time & money I wasted not delving deeper into learning more in this industry. I digress.
I was challenged recently to remove myself from my most loved social media outlet; so I did with much fear & trembling ;-). Doing so has been one of the most eye-opening experiences for me.
Not only can I see my personal areas that are in much need of repair but I am more consciously aware of how much life is wasted online (by myself & those around me). But how can something so seemingly good turn so bad, so quickly?
Mostly, I think it comes down to priorities, boundaries and focusing on building or maintaining non-internet related relationships while embracing the positives of technology.
Social media and the internet is a blessing. It has opened many doors for many people. But it has also brought many evils to even more people.
This post could get long so let me set you on a small challenge, nothing as radical is removing yourself from your most loved social media outlet but something with an end date. Easy, right?
Here it is: Don’t check your social media outlets for 1 day or dare I say for one weekend. Just one. Did you just cringe?
