Hours of typing, scrolling n' searching.

Time. Wasted time!?  

It’s where I spend almost half of my waking hours.  Living between IRL's n'

URL's.  I try to add substance to every post, anything worthy of attention..

wondering if somebody notice it or just scroll thru it.  


What’s happening around the globe outside of my 15 inch screen!? 


Regardless of how many likes n'  followers you have {or don’t have}, 

know this is not the end all in life.  There is so much more to life than

entertaining yourself w social media {Oppsss!}.  Sometimes we could be

missing out wonderful things that are happening in daily life because

our eyes are caught on the screen too often.

We must find a balance, overuse of social media is a real problem people face, n' it can distract you from  “real life”.  It’s okay to embrace the online world, but one mustn’t forget that likes n' shares only go so far.  {wiNk!} 


Thanks for the feedback

Outside of work, social media distracts you from enjoying the present. For example, let’s say you’re having dinner with your family. Instead of spending quality time with your loved ones, everyone’s faces are glued to their smartphones like mindless zombies. That’s definitely not going to strengthen the relationships you have with one another. 


Here’s another example. You go to a concert or a baseball game with a friend or business acquaintance. You’re not deeply involved in this activity or, worse, enjoying the company you’re with because you’re too busy posting social media updates — or checking in to see what everyone else is posting.

Besides these distractions, I’ve also noticed that I actually have more free time. I’ve been able to use this time to read, write, or learn new skills that make me a stronger person, both personally and professionally.

Without social media, I’ve been more productive and able to truly enjoy the company of the people I care about. Also, I have felt less stressed and am sleeping better.

When quitting social media, start looking for other ways to distract yourself so that you can avoid dwelling on the anxiety of being away from your feed. Pick up a new hobby, meditate, exercise, volunteer, read a book, or actually meet to catch up with a friend face-to-face.

Not only do these activities give you something else to focus on, but they also allow you to strengthen your existing relationships and establish new, more meaningful ones.
