Taking a break from social media

At the end of the day Friday I started a 3-week vacation that will take me through to the start of the new year. Given that my primary goal during this time is to rest and recuperate from the past year, I thought I would be a good idea to take a break from social media during this time as well.

To do this, I’ve decided to deactivate both my Facebook and Twitter accounts. I felt such a drastic measure was necessary (“why not just log off from both sites”) mostly because my habit of checking these sites is so strong that I needed to have a formal wall in place for those times that I slip and “accidentally” check in. I have deleted the apps from my devices and bookmarks from my browsers, so that will help as well.

In any case, I just wanted to post a note here in case anyone connected to me in either of those places noted my absence and was wondering what had happened. Nothing to worry about, no drama, just a decision to take a break! I’ll be back first week of January. See you all in the new year!
