I’m realizing that I since I don’t have time to check my social media during the day due to my duties at work, I spend my free time at home on and off of my different social media sites until I go to sleep. I watch the news to keep up on current events in the morning before work and I surf through my social media sites to keep up on pop culture after work.
In my mind, sometimes if I don’t check my Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram at least once a day, then I’ve missed everything. I hate being late on receiving news. I spend less time reading and more time on a computer, which is shocking because I stay on my computer all day at work which is no fun for my eyes. Fortunately for me, my job keeps me so busy that I don’t have time to check my phone during the day, much less my social media pages. By the time I get home I’ve considered myself late in receiving all the relevant pop culture news so sometimes I don’t bother checking Instagram. This is one step towards unplugging.
The internet is wonderful however you can ALWAYS find information and news. It’s good to take a break and unplug. I want to focus on reading and dancing in the little free time that I have.
Do you need to cut back on social media? What would you like to focus on doing instead of looking at your phone or computer?
