Energy of Serenity – Social Media Disconnect – Love It!
Energy of Serenity Social Media Disconnect – Love It!
So often we hear that social media is where it is at to stay connected and to market your business, whether you are employee or owner. I’ve struggled with this for a long time. And to be quite honest with you, I don’t like the concept at all. I don’t enjoy it personally, with my children’s books or my Energy of Serenity clients.
I like so many have gotten sucked down the rabbit hole and have spent countless hours writing posts, trying to figure out the algorithms of the various social media platforms, engaging with others on their posts, etc. The list is endless. And for what? No true authentic connection. Am I the only one out there that gets immense satisfaction when my weekly iPhone screen time average alert shows the number declining? I so love seeing the time go down. How about you?
Scrolling Through Social Media is NOT a Good Use of My Time
For me the time suck of scrolling and wasting so much time on social media is mentally draining for me. My time can definitely be better spent by catching up in-person (thankfully now that we are on the other side of the COVID pandemic this is the case), reading a good book, enjoying the beauty of Mother Nature, meditation, journaling, etc. Sure, many posts are funny or informative, but honestly does it change your life for the better with the time spent on social media? For me, NO. For others if it is good for you. Bravo to you!
A Conscious Decision to Disconnect from Social Media
About a month ago I made a conscious decision to step away from posting to my Instagram and Facebook accounts, and barely visited these social media platforms. I also took it one step further and stopped blogging for a few weeks. And you know what? My energy was renewed and I had more time to engage with my family, friends and Energy of Serenity clients in a more meaningful way, instead of being constantly connected via social media. I did miss the blogging and I resumed June 22 and of course I enjoy writing my monthly Energy of Serenity newsletter.
I will keep my Instagram and Facebook profiles active but that will no longer be a major way I engage with family, friends, book lovers and Energy of Serenity clients.
