Day Two of Social Media Detox:
Day two of no social media was pretty easy. I didn’t do too much that day except run a few errands, pack for Hawaii, and go to dinner with some middle school friends. Because I wasn’t doing anything too exciting, I didn’t feel the need to send Snapchats to my friends and share my day. I also didn’t really have time to randomly check my phone throughout the day and plus I knew I didn’t have anything to check anyways, so I barely carried my phone around with me. It felt really nice to not carry my phone around and not check it when I was out at the grocery store or something. When I met up with my friends, I didn’t even feel the urge to check my phone. I completely immersed myself in the conversations we had and the time we spent together. It was really nice.
Day Three of Social Media Detox:
These next few days I know are going to be difficult. I just got to Hawaii and of course I want to take pictures and show them to friends. I don’t know why now a days we want to share every little detail of our lives. Is it to just let people know what we’re doing or to have people feel jealous and make our lives seem so much better than they are? I honestly have no clue, all I know is that we document every little thing. I walked around 1.5 miles down the beach today and so many people were taking pictures and posing certain ways and yeah I get it people like photos of themselves, but I know most of these photos are for the Gram. People are so obsessed with how many likes they get on a picture, they have to look absolutely perfect. It is so stressful now-a-days and there is so much pressure to look a certain way or post a certain type of photo. I want to really enjoy my Hawaii trip and take in as much as I can without feeling like I have to share it with the world.
Do you think I can do it? Let me know!
