I spent approximately five days on social media detox for mental wellness, because once I recognized that I am the biggest hypocrite EVER here: so social-media-obsessed!
I admit it's been tough days (wasting less than an hour on Instagram and Twitter), but trust me, you will not be missing out anything in particular (unless you miss something about people you don't care much about). Gradually, I realized, I get a lot of time for myself and my plans. Instead of scrolling through my social media feeds, I would rather do something productive and dedicated to my goals and interests.
What Social Media Detox meant for me:
How do I feel after scrolling (is this fueling an emotional addiction?)
When I pick up my phone (am I able to sit in the present moment without it?)
Where I am without a phone (or keeping my phone on airplane mode during this time)
With accounts, I follow (regularly follow/unfollow accounts that bring me closer to the version of my highest self)
Have you tried to start your social media detox? What’s your experience?
Honestly, it feels amazing. Give it a go and know the difference.
More insights about the importance of social media detox and what has changed after I have done it, you can find in my upcoming newsletter issue (+bonus professional networking cheat sheet).
