No Instagram After 8:30 PM

May 4, 2017

HEY THERE, SWEET FRIEND!

Welcome to my little corner of the web… I’m so glad that you’re here! Take a look around to get a peek at the sweet couples I have the privilege of working with, and the things that make my heart sing.  Need something specific? Feel free to search below!

TAKE A LOOK AROUND

Well friends, as of last week, I’ve officially been going without Instagram past 8:30pm for three whole months with little exception (hey, we all know that I’m not perfect).  I started this challenge because I realized that it was really easy for me to waste away so much time at night – scrolling, wanting, and comparing.  What I should have been doing, was snuggling up with my husband, curling up with a good book, or catching up on a show without “multi-tasking” on my phone too!

Overall I’m so excited to say that this has been a pretty successful challenge.

There are a few down sides that I’ve learned though, too!  One thing that I am a little sad about, is how easy it was for me to replace Instagram scrolling with Facebook scrolling instead!  There’s just something to that scroll, huh?

I also found that because I chose to not check Instagram at night, I was more excited to “see what I missed” the next morning, which meant I started my day off catching up on a ton of posts…. Not the most productive way to kick-start my morning!


 

So I’ve made a few amendments to my challenge:

No Instagram or Facebook after 8:30pm.
No social media within the first hour that I get up!

 


 

What do you think? Is this something that you feel like could benefit you, too?  I’d love to hear what your strategies are to stop that social-media-time-sucking game!
