Yes, sometimes I just disappear. Which means I’m busy taking a social media break. I don’t forewarn because I don’t need permission to step away for me. When, I take these breaks I have discovered that I reappear with fresh creative ideas. Personally, when I’m absent I feel very present with myself.
You may think you have no time for a break but you do. There is 24 hours in a day and you can carve out at least 30 minutes of “me” time. Maybe you’ll have to revise your schedule, say no to somethings and yes to time for you.
Abstinence – is a self-enforced restraint from indulging in bodily activities that are widely experienced as given pleasure. -Wikipedia
I believe in 2020 taking a social media break would fit into the definition of abstinence. Abstinence is the opposite of indulgence. We all know someone that seems to have a unhealthy addiction in this area. I would suggest baby steps: 15 minutes, 20 minutes, 30 minutes toward a freedom break. 🙂
Some benefits of a social media break that I’ve discovered:
1. Improves your mood
2. Boosts your creativity
3. Time for reading a book
4. Creates time for a walk
5. Can start a family project
6. Work on a exercise routine
7. Discover a new hobby
8. Work in your journal
9. Rock painting, gardening, etc.,
*Personal time with God*
Go ahead! Disappear via a social media break. I promise your not going to miss anything and you’ll reappear even more amazing! ❤️
