So I am stating this now… It is something I have thought about for a while – but I am going to be doing a social media cleanse. This includes no instagram, facebook, twitter, snapchat and minimising Whats App (although I need it for work). Anything that is posted onto my social media over the next 21 days will be through my blogs only which automatically upload onto the said above social media avenues.
Social media has become the largest most time consuming hobby and habit. With 81% of the UK population with constant access to social media content 24 hours a head – this is only likely to rise over the coming years. The link in rise of anxiety and depression has also risen by 70% in the past 25 years – which has been identified to closely link into social media influences. Right I am not here to preach about how bad social media is – social media has changed the world and I think used correctly it is THE most amazing platform. BUT it also has its biggest downfalls – not only has social media usage increased and anxiety, UK Debt has also increased and it all links into trying to the credit generation and not linking into reality – alot essentially maintaining an unrealistic life to outsiders looking in. I am taking the challenge of the next 21 days to get out of my bad habits of social media and see how it affects my productivity, mindset and wellbeing.
How many of you our there watch others peoples instagrams and think, “I wish I had that in my life?” The issue is you don’t see what else is going on behind those pictures. Alot of the time those happy, exciting pictures of the most perfectly portrayed happy life are for that moment. We are all trying to live up to what we see others do or what we think we want. LIVE in YOUR moment! It is YOUR life and you can create your own realm of happiness. Who is going to post their unhappy moments? No body! Why would you? Everybody wants to portray their life as perfect. In my upcoming book: “Free-ed” I open up about alot of my past anxiety and history of how I overcame this all. By learning to live in my life. I want to help you all too.
In the next 21 days I am going to cover different topics on how to become your best version: Do You Guys Have Any Specific Topics you would like me to cover?
