What I did was, I deleted most of my soc med & messaging apps except Twitter , Messenger, and Telegram. Social media has been triggering my anxiety real bad. It gets me exposed to things which haunts me of my past and makes me out of focus for the day. And most importantly, social media really eats up your time. Lost time is time wasted. Proved to be helpful din.
For updates, mas nagt-Twitter ako. Telegram if I need to connect with my online buddies and messenger to chat with my real connections. Heck, I even prefer texting lol for the reason na para di ko makita na ‘seen’ or makitang ‘typing’. Kaso unfortunately, pag mga naka-iPhone yung kausap ko… wala hahaha.
If i want to login to Facebook, hindi rin nakasave yung password ko sa phone/laptop para kailangan ko pag maglagay ng password before I could log-in through my browser. Same with Peyups. Super addicted ako sa forum based discussion kaya mas okay sakin na sa browser ako magbasa. haha.
Edit: When dating or pag may kausap ako or pag may ka-meeting ako, I never even glance at my phone to check time. I have my watch for that. Taob lagi phone ko. Tho minsan, sabi nila, bad signal daw pag naggglance sa watch. But nope, I’d rather do it than look at my phone. Kaya super red flag sakin pag macheck sa phone when going out. hahaha
