Experiment: A Mini Social Media Detox - The Plan
Why on Earth would I want to do that, you ask? Well, I noticed I spend waaay to much time checking Facebook, Googling everything that comes to mind, admiring all the pretty Pins in the world, and reading a thousand blogs. Thankfully I don't use Twitter or Instagram. Oh, and I don't find LinkedIn addictive at all;) I think social media is eating away my creative time, and with this little experiment I'm going to prove wether that's true or not.
The plan is as follows:
Week 1: Pinterest detoxNo Pinterest. I choose it as the first one since it is my most recent addiction, and quite sever, too:) No pinning, no salivating over other peoples pins ... Instead of just looking at pretty suff I will try to make some. Finally the time to put those pinned DIY in action!
Week 2: Facebook detoxNo Facebook. I choose that randomly. That will probably be the hardest thing to do, since I check Facebook several times a day, even though I ask myself each time: "What am I even looking for here?" I think it will be particulary hard since I'm living quite far from my family and friends and I do get lonely. Well, I guess my phone bill is going to be a bit bigger this month ...
Week 3: Google detoxNo Googling things! I have a strange obsesion (or maybe it isn't so strange nowadays?). I'm an info-maniac. I will google just about anything, from recipes, to baby ailments to plain old weird stuff (such as Can a baby kill you, just to see if a similar thought passed anyone elses head as well... You would be surprised;)). The hardest part will be not googling adresses and useful info (such as temperature conversions from Fahrenheit to Celsius and vice versa).
Week 4: Blog detoxNo Bloglovin. I will also ignore blog posts from my favourite blogs shared on Facebook. Sorry guys! I don't think this is going to be particulary hard, though. I will of course continue to write my two dear blogs. :)
Week 5: Total Social Media DetoxWell, almost. To sum it all up and tie it with a bow, I will abstain from ALL of the above. I will only read my e-mails and that's it. So please write me an e-mail during this time;) Or better yet, send me a handwritten letter.
I don't know if anyone will be interested in my journey, if you are, please comment or send me a word of encouragement. Anyone wanna join me? ;)
