on my Facebook fast. I looked back yesterday and realized I was wasting too much time on Twitter, so today I deleted all social apps on my phone and have logged out of every social network. Outside of sharing articles and stuff like that, I’m not going to log in (and this shares directly to my social networks)
I never really thought about how much of a real time suck social media really is. When you’re bored, you log on and mindlessly scroll. I read yesterday that going online when you first wake up actually is bad for your brain. (I’ll post the link once I can find it. It disappeared, but it was in my pocket yesterday)
I try to get as much stuff done as I can when I first wake up before I go out for my first cigarette (part of my way of cutting back to quit- I can now go 1-2 hours after waking up, sometimes longer) depending on how much stuff I can find to work on.
I’m trying to do that now with internet.
I’m now 1/3rd of the way away from the end of my facebook fast, although I may keep pushing to see if I can make it longer. As long as I have messenger and am still able to contact my friends, I should be fine. I do miss the groups I was in.
I’ll see how easy it is to stay off ALL social media for the rest of the month- shouldn’t be too hard.
