I have been on social detox for few months. After watching the netflix show “the social dilemma”, I decided to stop using all the social media apps I have on my phone. I have deleted them all. First few weeks were rough because like any addictive thing, I had an urge to use social media to check what’s happening in my friends’ lives. It was hard, but I didn’t give up. After those hard few weeks, I felt good and I was engaged in doing more activities rather than staring on phone all the time.
Social media apps were addictive and it feels good to be not using them anymore. I had to get out and I did! Currently, I am only on watsapp (because of family contacts and groups) and twitter (to follow politics).
