Short Musings: Going social media cold turkey
As it turns out, the world didn’t end when I deleted my Snapchat, Facebook or Instagram accounts. Not even a quiver on the seismograph.
Albeit I’m not transitioning particularly well.
I’m still at the stage where I’ll instinctively tap around for my phone whenever I have 2 minutes to kill.
And then I think how sad it is.
How sad it is that I’m no longer resourceful enough to amuse myself for a measly 2 minutes.
How sad it is that I spent such a disproportionate amount of my time looking down at a something that is so artificial and calculated.
How much have I missed whilst staring down?
How much have we all missed?
It’s time to start looking up.
Your neck will thank you for it.
And, more seriously, so will your mind.
