TAKE A WEEK OFF OF SOCIAL MEDIA CHALLENGE!
Of course I made it into an inclusive, perhaps gimmicky spin on a genuine idea. Thats what social media can reduce things to. Not because its our intention to but because our attention spans can only handle so many seconds, words and pixels so many times a day. I took a week off of social media last week. I deleted my apps and plugged the fuck OUT! Okay, I used facebook almost once a day briefly to be honest. Notwithstanding, I have to say it was still a monumental break from the scroll mileage I usually accumulate on a weekly basis. I like to think I’m following good friends and accounts relevant to my interests and so that justifies the use. It doesn’t. Ongoing, I’ll be adding structure and limitation to my SM time because damn it I’ve been INFLUENCED! I’m a free thinker, a rebel and definitely not usually a yas woman but alas, the passivity of scrolling has hit my subconscious mind. I noticed my brain cell count spring back up in just a few days. I’m no puritan so I’ll be here enjoying SM and its lovely perks in moderation. I’ll support my friends and fellow businesses and artists. Mostly, I’ll be enjoying day today life with a robust presence and relaxed thumb. 😉
