More Social Media Talk

I unfollowed everyone & everything on Facebook for a couple weeks and here's what I've found out about myself.

I use to waste a lot of time scrolling my endless newsfeed.
I still was able to find other ways to waste time.
I was no longer being inundated with bad news, attitudes and nasty rhetoric.
I wasn't being blessed with the good news of others, either.
I started focusing more on myself, my own views and goals.
I missed cheering other people on.

I do miss the good stuff that use to pop up on my feed. I miss seeing pictures of my friend's kids pop up and bring a smile to my face. I miss seeing people build each other up when they are having a tough time. I miss some of it, for sure. 

The newsfeed on Facebook can be both precious and destructive, though.

You've heard me talk a lot about Instagram lately and, it's because I like it much more than Facebook. I am not sure when or if  I am going to bring back my newsfeed but, I do know that I still love the ability to stay in touch with my friends and all of you there, too.

I know this time we're in with social media is a strange and wonderful time and, that's why I am sharing all of this with you. I'm sure I am not the only one who struggles with the balance of it all. 

Self-care is super important in any weight-loss journey and self-care is a broad topic that includes a lot of different tactics. Unsubscribing from my newsfeed is just one self-care tactic I am using right now.
