Hola! 👋 Happy Tuesday eve! I’m back after a week off Instagram completely.
A couple months ago the leaders of the @ldschurch that I attend encouraged the youth to do a 7-day fast from social media, and for my own reasons I really felt that I needed to disconnect for a while too.... I absolutely love the inspiration and community that I find on here but sometimes the amount of time that we spend scrolling and “engaging” online can leave us feeling lonely and depressed even when we are surrounded by those who love us most...At least it had for me...The sad part was I really couldn’t even see it until I actually took the challenge to unplug.
It truly put my priorities back in perspective, allowed me to be fully present with my family and helped me feel genuinely joyful.....Anyways
I guess I would say if you’re feeling uninspired or stressed out I would highly recommend a social media fast to reconnect with yourself, your family and possibly your faith! BUT don’t expect it to be easy! 😝- It took will power beyond my control but it was sooo worth!!! Just some #tuesdaythoughts .
