Simple Social Media Experiment

Simple Social Media Experiment

I was spending too much time just scrolling through all the social media apps on my iPhone, nights and morning would pass with me not getting anything I wanted to done, because I was like a slave to my damn phone. I did not want Amelia seeing that mummy anymore.

So I gave myself a self imposed ban of at least 48 hours, all I could do was post my 100 days of happy picture and fill in my fitness pal, and one day checking my email for my grocery delivery slot time. One day I even accidentally forgot my phone as it was charging.

Over 50 hours later what did I miss, well other than some likes on my photos, absolutely nothing. I in this time got loads of housework done, I cooked nice meals and I read a really good book. Most importantly Amelia was completely different while mummy was not continuously checking her phone. I also felt much clearer in my mind.

I don’t think I have to say anymore really, social media is great but…

    I do this every few months, I generally take a week to a month off. It is really refreshing. I have recently turned all my notifications back off and have decided I hey are going back off. It just feels like too much to deal with.

    I agree there is a change in my kids too when I am not glued to my phone. I guess it enables me to be more present.

    I’ve just found your blog and I’m looking forward to reading more.

      Wow, a week or a month. I wish I was able to switch off for that amount of time, still I think it would do me good. I think I can feel another 48 hours coming on, I’ll start from there and see if I can build up from that. Baby steps lol.

      Thank you for reading.
