Whilst my blog was getting redesigned I took the opportunity to have a detox from social media. Don’t get me wrong, I love Instagram and Twitter but sometime’s it’s good to take a step back and a break from social media.
We spend an average of 60% of our day scrolling through social media spying on what other people get up to, getting jealous and judging others. I don’t get many negative or spiteful comments but the odd few that I get from followers, friends and sometimes even my family too can take a strain on you. There’s only so much you can take before you snap and react which will always make the situation worse.
Taking a social media detox was personally so good for me because when I came back from my detox I realised that I hadn’t missed social media all that much at all. A detox and a step back also made me realise that other people’s jealousy and spitefulness isn’t my issue and that it’s theirs.
Why don’t you try taking a detox from social media because I can promise you that the grass is greener on the other side and after a few days you will realise how little you miss social media and the negativity that can sometimes come with it.
See you guys next Sunday at 6pm
