Why Undergo A Detox Session
You are living the life in the present. When your Facebook account is open 24/7 and there are so many notifications or postings on your wall, you have this urge to check it every time it beeps. Once you are caught up with this habit, although you are socializing with your friends, you will still likely become an anti-social in the real world. You don’t get to do physical things because all you do is lie down and scroll through those postings. Also, the time you spend updating your status or checking your account will only take much of your time. Thus, giving lesser time with the ones you love.
Some people even said that they lessen their use of Facebook because they don’t get the time to look for the right and important things. It is made by most people as an excuse to disregard themselves and their happiness. They no longer have the time to reflect and think about something which truly matters to them.
Facebook also lets you hang on with those old memories. Although it is sometimes good to reminisce the past, what matters most is the present and the future. You need to experience more and learn from the happenings you will soon encounter.
Although having a Facebook detox can be very challenging, especially when you are the kind of person who does not normally unfriend people, limiting your Facebook friends won’t do you any harm. They can always add you back every time you get the chance to encounter and experience one another’s company.
Aside from the reasons stated above in order for you to have or undergo a Facebook detox, you need to give yourself this so called session in order to protect yourself. There are so many news reports nowadays that individuals become subjects of a crime because of negligent acceptance of friends or posting. You need to have the kind of privacy you deserve. Clean that account and feel safer, worry-free, and new you.
