What being offline for months has taught me and why you should try it
Testimonials about being “offline”
Min offline månad från sociala medier var det bästa jag kunde göra för att tänka till och bli mer medveten/närvarande i mitt liv. Det jag lärde mig om den här upplevelsen var att sociala medier tar upp väldigt mycket tid och energi, tid och energi som jag gärna lägger på något annat.
Och hur beroende jag var av “liksen”. Oj! Det var lite jobbigt att erkänna.
My references has changed as well. I notice my environment more and when I do, I see real human beings with varieties of body shapes and lifestyles. I also realize that people update their social media when something positive or UNcommon in their lifes occur. I learned that my life does not lack special occasions and peaks. This was a very important lesson for me. So THANK YOU Peter mr. Flawd! You challenged me to live my life and be more AWARE. And the return to social media was such an anticlimax.
I’ve gained additional respect for the people closest to me and how much their time and company mean to me.
