Social Media Addiction Update

imageOne week social media restriction update: I feel free! Really. I knew I spent way too much time on social media, but I had no idea how it impacted me. With the exception of one day, I’ve spent no more than 30 minutes total on social media, most specifically Facebook.

I feel much less stressed. That may be partially because I follow several dog rescues who frequently post dogs in need of urgent help. Definitely worthy work. But that kind of sadness takes a toll.

I’ve also written more, with a little more clarity.

I’m going to continue my 30 minutes a day of social media experiment for at least another month.

Have you ever imposed a social media restriction on yourself? Do you use social media intentionally or is it a place you just hang out? Do you feel like your time on social media is productive? Do you favor one social media site over the others?
