It’s now been a week since I last looked at Facebook and, other than a couple of times that I felt a desire to check up on friends and family, I honestly didn’t miss it that much.
What this tells me is that I rely on Facebook more as a time waster – when I’m bored, tired, etc – than I do for connections.
Shame on me.
This week-long period of “resetting” was good for me. My intention is to refocus on what matters where Facebook is concerned. So…less random checking and browsing on Facebook and more limited check-ins and meaningful reading.
Here’s to the value of pushing pause.
