Gasp! Say what? Jae stop playing with me! I know, it sounds crazy right? I mean, if you must be technical, I'm not 110% unplugged because I'm writing this blog. 😝 I have stayed away from Facebook and Instagram for a couple days now, and I must say, I feel fantastic!
Of course I get a little curious when I get super bored, but for the most part, they have both been off limits! Social Media changes you, no matter what you think, it does. I didn't like the mental state I was falling into by being so tuned into Social Media almost every waking moment.
You shouldn't be that plugged in, it's really not healthy. I know it may sound crazy coming from me who wants nothing more than to have a nice, thriving career in Social Media and Blogging, but you have to know when to take a break.
One of the biggest benefits I am happy with taking the much needed break is that my writing is thriving. I'm currently churning out book 4 in my zombie series and I couldn't be happier. I still don't outline, but I am making it work for me. There's a method to my madness. Ok, not really, but my writing workflow is a lot better.
Do you take regular breaks from Social Media? Do you schedule a certain time of day, or do you plan an extended break from Social Media? How do you unplug?
