Day 3376 – Taking Facebook Off My Phone And What I’ve Learned About Myself Since I Did

I mentioned last week that I took Facebook and Messenger off my phone, as well as blocking Facebook on my mobile browser and I wanted to give a little bit of an update.

The biggest thing I’ve noticed is how much of a habit it was to check Facebook. There have been so many times I’ve had the impulse to check it. Not having it on the phone and having little else to check, has forced me to put it down much more often.

It makes my mornings so much better and freer. Only checking Facebook on my desktop helps to keep it in one place, especially mentally. There is no reason to check Facebook dozens of times a day, really.

I also realized that I seek distraction a LOT of my day. I seem to find any excuse to “relax” “veg” “etc” during my work day. This was an especially good reminder.

I honestly don’t miss it.

Have you ever taken Facebook off your phone? How did it go? Let me know in the comments below.

  1. Same! I don’t have Facebook on my phone, just on my desktop computer. Now I find when I do check it it’s not nearly for as long because there are other things I want to do on the computer! I made a ‘rule’ for myself that the minute I see a post that upsets/angers/stirs me in the wrong way I will get off. It’s been great!
