Ok, so today is not going to be music motivated but life focused. Over the past six months I have been on a bit of a media black out, to the extent that I have not been on Facebook for more than posting for work and going onto buy and sell pages for Christmas. I have not touched my Instagram nor any other social media sites. Until this past month, I have not been watching youtube videos unless they were educational or motivational in nature.
It has been interesting, but what I found is that I enjoy the time it has afforded me. I have read a book a month, minimum. I have spent time writing and being creative, including making a few graffiti drawings that I have missed doing since 2005.
Although I don’t believe I will go much longer (in fact, I have already started getting back into it a bit), I do believe I have learned how to limit my time to a healthy point.
For some context, prior to July, I spent all of my free time on Facebook, Instagram, or youtube. Now, I know I can be better at limiting my time so I can do other things I enjoy, or things that build me up.
Just wanted to post about my experience and maybe inspire you to also try it out. Really count up the hours you spend on your social media apps and take it back. It may surprise you how much more time you have in a day.
