We've heard about how detoxing is good for our bodies.
But what about Social Media Detoxing?
Social media is a part of today's culture. But is it a part of who we are as individuals?
No. Those that may say yes, I understand, but no.
We only post what we want people to see. We only a show a part of who we are.
And sometimes, that just leads to a false reality.
Think about some of the downfalls of social media.
Social media sucks up time from valuable productivity (or R&R)!
Social media could even lead to a privacy risk (lol @ FB).
Social media might also lead to anxiety, depression, etc.
So why not do a social media detox?
If you said no -- saying that just only proves your dependency on social media and a need to DETOX from it!
There are several ways that it can help improve your life and your health.

Here are some ways to do a social detox:
1. Plan Your Detox
First things, first.
Make sure you know you want to do one. How long you want to detox for. And when you plan on detoxing! A plan will help your journey of social detoxing go smoothly for you.
2. Deactivate Your Accounts
This is honestly the easiest thing to do! And if you ever want to retrieve info or data saved on your account, make sure to save a backup or reactivate your account!
3. Uninstall Social Media Apps
Sometimes, we don't want to delete or deactivate our account because we just don't want to deal with that hassle. If that's the case -- try just uninstalling your social media apps! Those pesky notifications won't tempt you with opening an app. *winky face emoji*
4. Replace Social Media with Other Activities
When you figure out a way to avoid Social Media Temptation, try to figure out what you can do with the extra time that's on your hands! Like reading a book! Or go to that new ice cream parlor in DTLA!
And while these steps might be easy, sticking to a social media detox isn't easy.
Do your best to push through (I know you can do it!) and I hope that the detox helps you!
