2019 Monthly Prompts
January is always a great opportunity to explore new adventures, habits and yes routines. This January I limited my time on social media and it caused 10 surprising results:

  1. I actually only hold real conversations with 10 people on an average during the week. Some of those people I could just as easily text and catch up.
  2. Lowering my data plan to Improve my budget savings, cut down on notifications going off on my phone. Most apps like facebook, twitter, and a couple of games are now on my tablet, which is used in my home wifi.
  3. I have not been looking at the day to day negativity or posts that are posted without checking the facts, helps me stay mindful of how I feel each day.
  4. Morning and Evening routines are less interrupted due to knowing I logged off for the day.
  5. Towards the end of January, I realized I wasn’t dealing with remembering several passwords during my busy days.
  6. Because of an article called…Senior Executives get more sleep, I am sleeping better from not starring at a screen late at night.
  7. Last week of January I did not have much of an urge to even sign into social media.
  8. My days stay productive and my goals get met.
  9. I have been able to retain more information from news articles and from articles pertaining to my passions.
  10. On this last day of January, I have concluded that all my social media accounts need a Huge change to co-exist with my blog and future writing adventures.

    As an empowerment coach, I talk about this all the time. In fact, I mention how social media can be an adversary…in my latest book called F*ck The Pain and Make Today Your Bitch .

    I deleted all of my social media back in December. It’s interesting to know we don’t necessarily think about the attention we give people. Snapchat, Instagram, Facebook. Anyone who wants to stay in contact with you will. I realize I was trying to catch people’s attention on social media and I would become too attached to them because I had some kind of access into their lives. Also I was less sad or angry after not having to see all the negativity on my timeline. I don’t even know what’s happening in the news anymore. I’m alright with that.

      Thank you for your response, and visiting my blog. Your correct if people want to stay in contact they will. I currently am an administer for 3 groups on facebook and I participate more there than anywhere except blogger groups. Really considering making my personal page very restricted and just dealing with the positive people in those groups.

        Just a little update…I have now deactivated my accounts on Twitter and Periscope. Currently working on making my Facebook account very restricted and just focusing on my groups.
