Over the past month or so I’ve been thinking about how much time I spend on social media in comparison to how much I get out of it.
The end result was logging out of twitter and a week or so later I deleted the app from my phone. The only time I use it now is on my laptop at home a couple times a week and even then it’s only for about 10 minutes and I’m not mindlessly scrolling.
I’ve taken twitter breaks before but I got into the habit of using it so much and constantly checking it that I thought deleting the app would be really difficult.
I made a conscious effort to replace Twitter with something else which is really important when it comes to changing a habit. Shout out to the habit loop which I first learnt about when I read The power of habit by Charles Duhigg.
I’ve replaced twitter with writing which has been easy as cherry pie and has been incredibly helpful now that I’m a daily blogger.
I really thought it would be a challenging but it turns out deleting the twitter app was easier done than said.
