I have a legit addiction to my phone and all things social media. I love instagram and I love twitter (I could take it or leave it with Facebook though). It has actually started to take it's toll on my relationship with my husband. It all started when he would start making comments about how often I was on my phone during dinner or while we were sitting together on the couch. Don't get me wrong, he has his share of phone love too, but there is a time and a place and I'm realizing that now. We have started implementing "phone free" time at night. After Wyatt goes to bed we leave our phones somewhere and now go outside and hang out and talk. It's been nice! It's also helping our relationship because we're giving each other undivided attention and makes us both feel loved.
I really encourage everyone to try this out. Set a time at night when you turn off your phone or maybe just leave it somewhere that you can't constantly keep checking it. I know I always feel pressured to constantly check instagram and check out what my friends are doing. And I still plan on being active on all my social media outlets, but I'm going to all set aside time to just be with the people in my life as well. It's a process!
