Internet Usage.

When it comes to internet usage at-least for myself am heavily involved with all aspects of the internet when it comes to my daily life and even my professional life being a social media manager. I feel like sometimes there is really no escape in the way I live my life, but I think it’s all about how you manage your online presence. When its comes to your mindfulness you have to take a step back and look at your life in a bigger picture. There are days I will spend the entire day on my phone going through social media and watching videos. I think it was shocking when Apple updated their phones to track your onscreen time on your phone and I was shocked about how much time I would be spending on my phone over a period of a week. Most of that time could of been spent on so many other things I had going on in my life. That being said I think it would be a great way to shock others about how much time they are spending on the internet and social media apps. I think it also might be a good idea to make set up screen usage reminders about how much time throughout the day you’ve been on your phone. I defiantly think I need to be more mindful when it comes to the internet because I feel like I’m so engaged in constantly checking on updated that its gonna be hard to limit those actions I’m so used to doing it on a daily basis. I think with limiting the usage online I’ll be much happier being able to get more things done and do more self care with myself and maybe pick up going to the gym more often and feeling better about myself overall. I think sometimes social media can be depressing at times when looking at everyones “perfect” lives or the ones they want to display. The ways the internet refreshes me is using it in a personal way on things I want to accomplish for example researching recipes to make a home for my ILP which has been very fun. I think going back to seeing everyone post about their “perfect” lives for social media can be a bit depressing when in reality most of time it’s just a cover. I also think being so far away from family can be soul sucking seeing updates about your loved ones while being so far away. Being more mindful about my internet usage will overall make me a more motivated and happier individual I think!
