It’s Wednesday morning, here in Indonesia. I would like to do something specific today. I’ll be doing a “mindful scrolling” throughout the day 🙂
As checking social media become kind of a routine nowadays, I feel like sometimes I fall into mindlessly scrolling my social media feeds without gain “something more”. So today, I decided to mindfully using those social media, these include :
Mindfully open an app.
Not just because it was there! But because I want to reach someone or someone has reached me. Do the type mindfully too 🙂
Mindfully read social media feeds.
I’m connected with Facebook in most of my daytime. So, today I will carefully read what’s on my news feeds and kind of delete or unfollow some account who is not adding value for me anymore. It’s the same with Instagram and Pinterest, which I open it frequently during the day. I will set a special time to just pay attention with the images and the caption –not just scrolling trough them mindlessly.
Disconnected after 7 pm.
With smartphone just right on my palm most of the time, sometimes I can’t help but always turn my mobile data on. But today, I’ll be turn it off after 7 pm and just using it for listening to podcast or music.
I’ll try this JUST for today. But, I hope I can continue even for tomorrow and the day after tomorrow…
Have you ever been doing a mindful practice in using social media? Or do you want to join me? 🙂
