100 day challenge!

Posted: April 4, 2017 in Uncategorized

A kid sitting in a restaurant patiently waiting for his parents to finish. Not finish eating as they all have finished eating 20 minutes ago, but he is patiently waiting for his parents to finish their Facebook session. 

This is 20 minutes this family will never get back again. Social media is sucking life away from us. It has ruined relationships, it has made people feel not worthy or not good enough. It has deteriorated our ability as human beings to simply communicate with one another. Who talks on the phone anymore? The phone is really our way of watching our family and friends and sharing ourselves with the world. It is no longer a device to reach out and touch someone. Formal communication is almost instinct. 

Watching television or a movie as a family or with your significant other, has become obsolete. Now, tv is used as background noise as you scroll through your newsfeed to enjoy what other people are doing. Kids don’t play anymore. They are stuck in their tablets or phones slowly losing communication skills and imagination. Parent and children interaction is minimal. I have seen people ignore their kid or say “hang on” while the parent sits on their phone looking at pictures of other kids. 

Our we addicted? Can we go without? I wanna know. So, as someone that has told my kid “hang on” and someone who has picked up the phone to look at Facebook while trying to watch tv with my kids, and someone that spends a lot of time interacting with people via social media, I wanted to see how addicting this is. I wanna see if I can gain LIFE back and see how different my life can be without social media. So as soon as I finish this blog post, I will eliminate my social media apps and move on with my life for the next 100 days. I wanna see how addicted I am to social media. I wanna see if it is possible to have a life not revolving around me picking up my phone. What will happen to me and what changes will take place?  I challenge you to see if you can go 24hours without it. I bet it is harder than you think.
