I took Facebook off my phone

And as a sorry FWP, I had real anxiety about it.  I’ve spent innumerable hours scrolling Facebook in the last four years since I had my first child and have been nursing or pregnant (aka exhausted) pretty much constantly since.  It’s getting better now, and I decided it was time to let this crutch go.  I still get on it on the computer, mainly for garage sale groups and three other groups I belong to that I find useful.

I didn’t think just taking it off my phone would do much.  I thought I would log on via the phone’s web browser.  But I haven’t.  And it’s been glorious!  I pick up my phone probably 75% less, and am on FB itself 90% less.  I don’t feel beholden to my phone, imprisoned by it, ready to chuck it in a lake anymore.  And I’m not particularly doing anything that amazing with that time, but I don’t feel so time scarce, as Ilse mentioned in one of her recent posts.  And I’ll take all the time I can get.

One thought on “I took Facebook off my phone

  1. Great! I am also making progress in my time goals. My calendar emailed me “phone/errand sabbath” and so every time I open my email, these words remind me to close it and do something else. Although I had some necessary errands this weekend, I completed them all today when the rest of my family was busy; now I will enjoy myself for the remainder of this wonderful long weekend. Hope you have a great weekend, too!
