100 Days of 0% Social Media

September 16- December 25, 2021

Starting a few days ago I decided I wanted to distance myself from social media to recenter myself and be more present in the life I am living. I wanted to post both my reasoning and my goals that I hope to accomplish during this time both for accountability and to perhaps motivate you to encourage growth during the holidays instead of waiting for the New Year. I also plan on posting semi-regular updates on how I am feeling, how my goals are going, and how I am succeeding or struggling with my journey.  That being said- let’s get into the goals for my 100 days with 0% social media. 

Why?

  1. I want to spend my time either productive OR in a way that brings me happiness. I want to reduce wasting my time mindlessly scrolling. 
  2. I want to fully focus on my goals. Building new habits while maintaining a life is hard enough on it’s own- let alone adding easy distractions to the mix. 
  3. I would like to re-discover who I am without social media labels and the pressures to fit those labels that come from being online. I want to make sure I am doing things because I like to do them and not just because I put a pressure on myself on my socials to do so or to be a specific type of person. 
  4. I want to be more PRESENT in my life and with the people I am with. 
  5. I would like to use this time to grow, develop skills, and re-ground myself.

100 Days of 0% Social Media Goals

My plan is to develop “base habits” in the first 10 days and then every 10 days add a new goal and add to the existing habits. I am hoping this creates easy going, maintainable habits that I would like to have for the foreseeable future. I am also setting up “check-in” journal entries so I can see where I am succeeding, where I am struggling, and how my mood is affected over time. 

I would also like to note that I downloaded Duolingo on my phone so that when I am in a public setting or need a mental break to be on my phone- I have something to “entertain” me while also adding to a skill I would like to obtain which is speaking Spanish. I also have YouTube and Spotify to listen to beneficial videos, podcasts, and music. NOW- the following are the habits I plan to develop during this time.
