So I made it through a whole day of no FB.
I thought it was going to be more difficult than it actually was. I noticed I did have more time to get my tasks done because I am not distracted.
I also realized that I find myself a little more annoyed because I am not patient. So when I am waiting in line for something, or waiting for my desk top to load…or some other menial thing that I tend to look at FB or read my emails so that I don’t have to think about “waiting” without being entertained by my phone.Â But then I get distracted so it actually takes me longer than if I had just waited for whatever to load. If that makes any sense.
I am going to try and do simple tasks like cleaning or organizing while I am waiting for whatever task at hand…so I can replace it with something positive. I will see how much better I feel about that.
Day 2 may be a different story>?? I don’t know. but I thought maybe I might fall in love with a different outlet if I didn’t have FB. So I would just let my phone suck me into something else. That didn’t happen. But I do find myself day dreaming a bit more about things. Which is good and bad because I can get lost in my own thoughts very easily. I think I learned it as a coping mechanism and I can totally create my own universe and stay there awhile.Â I am wondering if Fb was just a “different” universe for me to get lost in and it won’t actually matter for me? I can create one without technology. I didn’t realize that until today.
However, I do think it’s better for me to be in my own head because at least that is creative and I can do something with it….sometimes. Maybe FB just numbs me from myself? I don’t know? But I am really trying to pay attention. I want to be aware of myself and my actions.
I will keep you posted.
