As we all know by now social media is a platform that can completely consume people. But how do we know when enough is enough? Heres some signs that it may be time for you to put down the phone and unplug for a little bit!
- When you post do you find yourself obsessing over the amount of likes/rts/comments you get?
Who doesn’t enjoy a little attention and praise every now and then when they post something? But when you find yourself NEEDing a certain amount of likes/rts/comments in order to keep something posted or feel okay with yourself than it may have come a little to far.
2. Constantly refreshing your feeds
Do you find yourself constantly refreshing your news feeds, or thinking about them when you don’t have access? Is checking your feed the first thing you do when you wake up and last thing you do before bed?
3. Missing out on real life experiences
Have you been noticing yourself missing things that happen right in front of you, or maybe you’re only seeing it through your screen so that you can post about it? Or maybe people have to nudge you in order to get your attention away from the screen.
If you have found yourself falling into any of these habits I challenge you to step away from the devices and completely unplug! Now I’m not saying completely get rid of it, but a few hours a day unplugged could do us all some good!
Have you noticed you need to unplug? If so share your experience!
