How Spending Less Time on Social Media Has Benefitted Me

I’ve deactivated my Twitter account and go on certain social media platforms significantly less now. I have set a time limit on other platforms, such as Instagram. Why?

Firstly, it’s not realistic for me to chat with people online 24-7 every single day. I have sh!t to do! I am busy. Secondly, it does not fit my personality as I am someone who feels energized when I do my hobbies. Talking to people for prolonged periods of time and going outside very frequently feels draining. It’s extremely important to me that I do not lose sight of myself and that I remain true to myself.

Some social media platforms are pretty toxic. I don’t want to be like No Face from Spirited Away and be influenced/changed by the toxic space. I’ve blogged about the topic of toxicity in environment in this post.

Now that I’ve been using social media less, I can put out more blog posts! I can stay on top of my work tasks and do other things like house work LOL. I can spend more time with family and be more present in the moment.

I haven’t spent an entire day at home since the school year ended. I’ve been eating out a lot with different people everyday. It’s something like this:

 

Last Sunday – First day of summer break!!! I went to see my future home (currently under construction) for the first time

Monday – Went to meet up with a friend at 1:00, another friend 1:30-5:30, and then another friend 5:30-night. I got my Rilakkuma stuff and had Jap food for dinner.

Tuesday – Work.

Wednesday – Work.

Thursday – Bingsu with four friends!

Friday – Bubble tea and lunch with a friend. Then I went to a church event with her family.

Saturday – Beach day.

Listening to: Kanon Wakeshima – Maboroshi

This is a song I can listen on repeat and just relax~ I think I want to spend the day inside tomorrow because I really like spending time with my family. On Tuesday my mom and I ate at a pho restaurant and then we watched the Sherlock special episode on Netflix. I love food.
