Episode 10: Is Social Media Really Necessary?

Man… we spend so much of our time here. With life happening all around us, most of us would rather live it through the lens of our phones. Or even worse, so many people get so caught up in watching other people lives through their ‘stories’ and glorified highlight reels that they forget to live their own.

In my defense, I was pulling out my phone so I could take a picture of the time (because I ran my record time at this 5k which was so fast that the other cameras may not have gotten it. Definitely faster than @coltpowell 😉)

But really, I’m guilty of it too. That’s why I try to be intentional with the time I spend on my phone, on social media more specifically, especially when I’m spending time with friends or working or reading or doing all the things I enjoyed before social media was even a thing.

Granted, both of my businesses and my ability to reach people all over the world with these messages was enabled through platforms like this – but there’s a time and a place, and you have to monitor the real “why” behind how much time you spend on here.

Here are 3 things I do that I recommend you do if this message speaks to you:

1. Smart phones track how much time you spend on what now (Instagram, Facebook, texting, calling, etc ) so take a weekly inventory and if there are any red flags, address them and work on them.

2. Do regular social media “fasting”. I’ll take 2-3 days entirely off my personal page every week or two so I can refocus on what’s really important.

3. Ask yourself why you even use this platform. Is it benefiting you realistically? Are you benefiting others? If it’s neither, then there’s really no point.

Life’s wayyyy too short to look back and realize you spent most of it scrolling on here.
