1 MONTH without social media CHALLENGE follow up!

Hello everyone! Long time no talk,
 So I am back and here's what I have to say about my month without social media.

First things first, it was harder than I expected as I often found myself on facebook and did not even remember opening it because it was just so routine. I didnt even realize how often I browse social media without thinking about it.

Secondly, I noticed I felt like anexious but also started using my free time better, I did more reading and research on topics that interest me instead of just mindlessly scrolling on Instagram.

Thirdly, I bought less stuff. This one might sound weird but with advertising constantly being pushed down our throats about new products and merchandise we "NEED" from different brands, I often find myself falling victim to the hype and interest around these promoted items. I notice this especially with Instagram as so many social media stars are getting paid to promote products to their followers that they probably don't even use.

Over all I would say the month wasn't that difficult only the beginning did I find myself using face book by mistake. I encourage everyone to try to not use social media for a month because because it was really nothing but a positive experience. I felt a little bit more in touch with myself and think I will continue o limit my social media use just not as strict as the one MONTH challenge.

So please CHALLENGE YOURself and stay away from social media and let me know how it makes you feel and if it was really a challenge for you.

Thanks for the read xx
Until next time
