Facebook let me know that 11 years ago today I joined. A lot can happen in 11 years. I will spare you the corny Facebook video. As you may recall, I recently removed the app from my phone. It was quite honestly one of the best things I’ve done. This article agrees with me.
I’ve noticed the following things:
- I look at my phone less
- My battery stays remarkably more full throughout the day
- There are times when I look to my phone to distract myself and I’ve ended up looking out the window or taking a few deep breaths
- I read more news
- I need to be mindful about when I upload a picture to my personal facebook page (I have the pages app because I use Facebook or work purposes) because I can’t just check something on my phone
For me, it is working extremely well not to have Facebook on my phone. Have you ever considered taking the step? I’d love to hear about it.
