I’m going to stand on a small soap box today. I did something last week that has opened so much time in my day and allowed me to be more present in the moment. I deleted Facebook from my phone. I know, I know, it doesn’t sound like a lot. However, I am almost embarrassed to admit how much time I spent scrolling through a timeline of “news” and events that I don’t really care about. Don’t get me wrong, I love seeing all the pictures of friends’ babies I don’t live around anymore or the occasional video of a cat playing with an elephant, but the truth is, it was killing HOURS in my day.
A friend gave me the idea last week – you know who you are and a huge thank you to you! I’ve been an active Facebook user since 2005… 10 years of this! Granted, the newsfeed hasn’t been around that long and I didn’t like it when it first came out, but slowly it took over my day like a vine in the garden that can’t be tamed.
Staying off of Facebook during the day has actually made everything a lot more fun; I’ve limited posting what I’m doing on Facebook and simply enjoy the people I’m with, in the moment I’m in.
