Do YOU have the strength, the fortitude, the power to “shut it down” to work on you?

Do YOU have the strength, the fortitude, the power to “shut it down” to work on you? Here is a challenge for you, and maybe an action to put your New Year Resolution into motion. Beginning on the first day of this coming New Year, 1/1/2023 log out of social media, shut it down, for 30 days to work on you, and your goals. To get into the gym for 30 days straight, to eat healthier, to read that book(s) you have been wanting to read. To work on you, and your physical, mental, and spiritual well being. Are you able? Do you have what it takes? Can YOU resist the temptation? Are you willing to make a difference for yourself and un-plug, re-charge, and work on you?

Don’t get me wrong, social media can be a good tool for the good. For work/business, for inspiration, encouragement, and sharing memories with friends and loved ones. I leverage it both for ministry as well as keeping in contact with friends. However, much of social media is intentially designed to be addictive, to stay on it for hours at a time. To suck you in, to keep you in, which robs you of priceless time and disconnects you with real life personal relationships.

I have personally witnessed friends posting 15 to 30 posts in one day on Facebook alone! I have witnessed both the young and old sitting at dinner tables not even speaking to one another while continuously on their devices barely saying one word to another. People taking selfies multiple times in one day thinking in some way if provides them validation. I have seen people walking down the street with their faces buried in their devices while walking into traffic. We are missing the gift of the moment folks, we are missing interacting with the priceless relationships we have right in front of us. No one will say on their death bed that they wished they spent more time at work, nor more time on social media. How about we take a challenge on New Years Day to disappear off of social media for 30 days to work on ourselves, and the priceless relationships right in front of us?

Can YOU un-plug, to re-charge, to work on you, and your goals for 30 days? And maybe shock others with what you are able to achieve?

If you have not noticed, you may have seen less of me on social media. Although I am a writer, podcaster, YouTuber, and enjoy leveraging social media for ministry, work, and engaging with friends and family from afar, I am measuring my time on social media, and utilizing more of my time of being in the moment, especially with loved ones right in front of me in addition to my goals, reading, and writing. So if you see me disappear for days, to weeks, even a month, this is why. Because those I am with in the moment, and my valuable irreplaceable time is more important than social media. So are my goals to be more healthy, physically, mentally, and spiritually.
