I used to worked as a social media manager once. I had to always be on the roll with the social media. It was really crazy. What I did after I quit that job is went to volunteer in Nepal in the middle of nowhere on top of the mountain for a month. There was still signal but only in certain part of the living compound and I didn’t feel like touching my phone at all because I was already so sick of social media at that point. I always put my phone in flight mode, only turning it on to call my family and friends and occasionally sharing pics of Nepal on my Instagram. It was a very refreshing month 😊

I think it’s ok to use social media but taking a break every now and then is definitely good 😁
