For many present day businesses, it's essential to have a strong social media presence. Social media platforms like Instagram not only give us a platform to push our content by using hashtags and geotagging, but they also provide us a place to gain inspiration and keep up on what's going on around us.
Unfortunately, sometimes we can get a little too wrapped up in what's going on around us and lose sight of what it is we want to contribute. And by "we" I mean me, but I'm just hoping I'm not the only one. I've gradually became more and more okay with not having the time to do extra projects and have been telling myself that it's okay to take a break. But then I find myself getting lost on Bloglovin' or Instagram in my 30min-1hr breaks between classes or other small gaps in the day and end up feeling frustrated that I'm not creating.
As I mentioned before, some serious inspiration can be gained from platforms like Bloglovin' and Instagram and there's no denying that. But it's somewhat of a double-edged sword in that it has the tendency to become a distraction from getting shit done. So, I'm making a conscious effort to stray away from social media during breaks and instead use that time to utilize my notebook and, ultimately, my mind.
What are your thoughts on this? Does social media ever affect your work ethic?
