I decided to do a social media fast this past weekend.
It was hard. Especially Saturday. Not because I wanted to see what is happening in the world but because of the habitual tap on the social media icons on my phone.
Sunday was much easier.
(Full disclosure, I failed the fast a few times.)
When I finally (officially) broke the fast I went through Instagram, Linkedin, Facebook, and Twitter.
As I was scrolling I realized:
- I missed nothing.
- As I was scrolling I was actually quite bored.
I’ll be doing this kind of fast more often. Ideally every weekend.
You should consider joining me.
