For those immersed in social media, and the constant stream of updates from various networks, it’s important to step back once in a while.
As social media starts to take over our daily lives and habits, it’s worth remembering we must still attend to ourselves – our own inner spirit and pace.
Just because it’s becoming easier to connect with people, and people are willing to embrace the idea of sharing their thoughts and lives online, around the clock – it doesn’t mean we must, nor are capable of, attempting to absorb all the worlds’ activity and updates. Consider your life, and those you care most about, as the most important use of your time, always.
Don’t kill yourself trying to stay informed of everyone, everywhere. There’s just too many status updates, pictures, blogs, etc, for one to absorb at a natural pace.
The world of social networks will always be there when you want to seek it’s comfort of connection and friendship. The amount of time spent on social networks, and the intensity put forth – however exciting and captivating – will not enrich your life any more than it already is. Enrichment comes from real relationships and connections, mainly created in the physical world.
Spend your time forming real-world relationships, or enhancing existing ones, instead of mediocre online-relationships.
Stay in your world. Don’t be tempted by the easy reach of the rest of the world. It contains nothing but superficial and surface-like qualities. The deep connections are already in your nearby surroundings.
