Why is it important to take breaks from social media?

I can’t emphasize enough on how it’s important to take time to be on your own for a while away from the media away from the crowd just to reflect, to get know yourself better and to live in the moment. 
I decided a while ago that I will always go for social media detox whenever feel I needed to because its really important. Sometimes I feel like I pressurise myself a little too much to post and to be active. When I tried taking two weeks off last week, I noticed that I had more time to connect with others, to read and to be present in every moment. I also didn’t feel like I had to post about anything so I used to not be on my phone as much as before.

Even if I blog and post a lot about my lifestyle, I don’t show every detail of my life cause I really appreciate my privacy, I love to have boundaries and to know what to share and what not to share. I have a choice of showing people what I want but most importantly I have to always be genuine and authentic in whatever I do.
Taking two weeks off made me reflect more on what I want to do, and if whatever I do reflects my authentic self. I came to realise that, I am the same person but I just need to stop pressurising myself to be very active when I don’t have to!
I usually use social media to reflect on how I feel and I love to always focus on showing a genuine lifestyle away from focusing on materials and fancy things! Because I know that more people want to see “real life” and they want to see people that they can relate to.
Whenever you feel confused or you feel you need a break, take it! its very important to connect with yourself and to connect with people in real life. Media takes a lot from our energy and stops us from living the moment sometimes. It also amazing to take a break while you’re traveling and to be surrounded by nature. You don’t have to put a time limit just delete every platform that distracts you, and be away until you feel you are ready to be back! trust me you will be back with a better energy.

27th Birthday.

It has been another year full of changes, adventures, ups and downs. I’m grateful the new people that I met this year that added more light to my life and filled it with joy. I’m grateful for the ones that gave me another lesson in life. Grateful for the ones that let me down because they only lifted me higher and made me stand on my feet stronger than ever. Grateful for having the most amazing family, friends, health, food & shelter. All I need is happiness, more adventures & always appreciating simple pleasures of life.
