Day 3091 – Minimalism Series – Minimizing Your Social World And Media Consumption

I’ve grown and changed a lot over the last five years, from getting sober, to moving a lot, to changing careers several times, and just a whole bunch of different mindset shifts. Through all of this growth, I’ve learned how to be honest with myself and true to myself. There are things that can make me upset, there are things that are draining, there are things that I see online that will deeply affect me for hours or days.

To help keep my social feeds healthy, I have created friends and pages lists. This helps me to keep my mind and soul protected.

You can set time limits and night time/morning time cut offs. I turn off my work notifications from about 5 pm – 8/9 am every day, and none on weekends (except for special circumstances).

I’ve also learned that it really throws off my work week if I work out of the apartment multiple days in the row. So I take very special care to keep my out of apartment days spread out. Again, there are some special circumstances at different times of the year (I’m looking at you week before Christmas!)

Here’s an example of what happens when I work out of the apartment too many days in a row
