Doom Scrolling or wasting your life away on social media. Thanks to Apple’s screen time feature I had discovered that although I was working 10-12 hour days I was still loosing way too much time to social media. You see a few minutes to see what your friends and family are up to can lead you down of rabbit hole and 45 minutes later your commenting on the latest crisis du jour and now your productivity is out the window.
So a few months ago I decided that I was no longer going to scroll endlessly on social media. I still have my accounts but I only check them when I get up at 5am and have them open just long enough to clear out any notifications and that’s it. I still love the idea of social media to help connect us to those around us. However the darkside has also turned me off.
Here is an example and you can extrapolate it how you like. Say that you are into works of art and really love Monet, suddenly your feed is full of his works of art and groups to join and you’re able to connect with lots of like minded people. However this is really limiting as well as what if you also like Renoir, Picasso, Dali or Van Gogh, but the Monet people that you have connected with only like Monet and that’s it.
Finding a difference of opinion is really the spice of life. We can’t be all of one and none of the other. There is so much going on in the world and it’s best to approach it with an open mind. Social media, as good as it gets tends to group us around similar interests and that is far too limiting. So if I am not commenting on your latest cat photo, your vacation selfie or any number of your special occasions it’s not that you’re not important to me it’s just that I am no longer scrolling my life away.
I look forward to hearing from you in regard to your mortgage needs.
