digital detox time
how is your spring experience going so far? mine has felt amazing (minus the allergies of course 🥴!). this season is truly showing me so much love.
a week ago I decided that it was time for a digital detox and it just kinda struck my awareness while I was scrolling on instagram. it felt like an immense feeling of boredom and anxiety at once, but most importantly, i was interrupting my sacred peace of mind. since then, i’ve deleted instagram and tiktok off of my phone and haven’t engaged much, which as always, has felt amazing.
every time i take a break from social media i am reminded deeply about how i just know deep down that i’m not designed to be on it consistently. like everything else, my desire to spend intentional time online comes in seasons. although this isn’t good from an “algorithm perspective”, i mostly don’t care anymore.
our wellbeing is more important than being trapped in the attention economy, but oftentimes that’s not the underlying feeling I pick up on within the creator/freelance space. the fear for so many is to lose momentum attention, but that doesn’t resonate with me anymore.
what is for you is for you. taking a break off of social media from time to time isn’t going to get in the way of any blessing that’s on the way to you right now. i don’t think the universe works that way.
