There’s no doubt social media is a significant part of my daily life. As a full-time publisher I rely very much on social media. But with all of the current changes on Instagram and summer being in full swing I decided to take more breaks. This whole comparison game can get tiring which is why I decided not to waste too much time scrutinizing what others are doing, especially if I’m not even close with them to begin with. Instead, I decided to focus on pursuing my own personal goals.
One reason to take breaks from social media is that most of the images we see don’t relate to positive thoughts or happy moments. Eve
It’s easy to get trapped in the mindset of seeking validation from others. Truthfully our happiness should primarily depend on whether or not we enjoy a certain situation and not what others think.
If you really consider people your friends, you should do more than post on their timelines for their birthdays and like their latest Instagram photos. Instagram and Facebook tend to distract us from taking the time to actually connect us with our close friends. Spending time with friends in real time is the way to go which equals ‘less time on social media and more time in real life’.
How do you feel about social media? Do you take frequent breaks to refresh your mind and soul? Let me know in the comments. As always, I would love to hear from you!
