Social Media Cleanse

Hi Globetrotters,

I have been going through a “keep-it-simple-stupid” phase. It is time pause, take a step back from social media.

I only have one medium, which is Instagram. I thought that one was more than enough to maintain. However, it can sometimes be too much.

It is almost instinctive to grab my phone in the morning and look for updates in my feed. Then, I scroll through the search, where there are some funny 5 second stories.

Before you know it, an hour has gone. I love social media because I am connected to my friends. I also get some great ideas from it,, such as home decor or gardening. But also, I am not present with what I am even watching. I am just mindlessly scrolling through the feed.

So just like my meatless month, I am taking a break from Instagram until Easter. It just feels like a good marker to come back. I can’t say that I will delete my account; Some of my most precious pictures are on there and stored nowhere else.

I just want to be more inward focused this year- have a little zen moment. I hope you are all doing well in 2021 and doing some great things for yourself.

Ciao,

Amy
