I want to share a little about my “DAY OFF OF SOCIAL MEDIA”. I decided to take Sunday off completely from ALL social media! No Pinterest, Facebook, Twitter, or anything else. I did this because I was feeling like my life was intertwined with social media. Being that I work in the social media sphere you can imagine how often I am on it! I wanted to gain back control of my life and not feel like I needed to check my phone every 3 minutes (literally).
I’ve got to tell you, I had an AMAZING day! I got up and made homemade oatmeal and scrambled eggs, visited with my aunt who came over for tea, went to the gym and then came home and did a little cleaning and then took a nice long shower. After I got ready for the day my mom picked me up and we went shopping for a new couch. I never felt that impulse of having to check my notifications and didn't hear the little DING all day long. Then in the evening I went out for a nice dinner with my husband’s side of the family!
The entire day I felt FREE, I was not tied down to feeling like I had to answer IM’s immediately, respond to any comments or scroll through and see what everyone else was up to. It was such a great day! I did this partially for my own SANITY but also to see what it would feel like to have this time where I didn’t worry about my social media. Part of my marketing (which is true), I say I will give you back 5-10 hours of free time each week.
For me personally, I would love to help others feel what I felt today. By having help with your social media, you can relax and take the time to do whatever you may need to do and not feel the pressure of always having to check your social media. Even if you don’t end up hiring me or someone else to help you I strongly recommend disconnecting from social media and other forms of communication for at least one day a week!! Do it for yourself and see what I mean :)
