Social Obsession: Why to get away from your Phone

Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, VSCO, Facebook, Tumblr, Pinterest- it’s all I’ve been doing this week!

I’ve been home a lot this week from the weather here in New England and all I’ve done is been on my phone. I’m constantly on Instagram, Twitter, Tumblr etc. Since when did my phone and social media account become so important to me and take over my life? The simple answer, when society said that it was more important to be on my phone/social media than to actually experience life.

So yesterday, I tried an experiment. How much could I accomplish when I only went on social media once every 3 hours… my results turned out pretty spectacular.

Yesterday I was able to:

  • journal
  • complete homework
  • clean my bathroom
  • clean out my closet
  • write this blog post
  • enjoy dinner with my family
  • read
  • go outside in the snow with my dog
  • do some yoga with my mom
  • relax and rejuvenate┬ámy skin/hair

In other words, I was really productive! Instead of looking relentlessly at a screen filled with people’s “perfect lives”, I was able to get some things done to improve my life. Yes, it’s hard not to go on Instagram and Twitter every 5 minutes, but why be a slug, when you can get stuff done!

I hope this was helpful and will inspire you to get off your phone and go to do more of which makes you happy!

Love Always,
