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.
