The past week has been a busy one. Full of daily routine, meetings, and business building. All happening with my cell phone by my side.
While busy, my week was not an uncommon one and on Saturday evening, while catching up with a girlfriend I was reminded how paramount it is to live in the moment.
Often times we forget how valuable in person conversation is. We frequently need to be reminded how important it is (in this day and age) to put down our cell phones and actually enjoy another’s company. This is exactly why I chose to spend my Sunday with some of my favorite people and live in the moment.
I didn’t blog, I didn’t update my status and I didn’t periscope. It was a much needed social media rest and it got me feeling recharged for the week ahead.
As much as I value social media (any network marketer knows how crucial it can be for business building), I found that having some time to unplug was really refreshing and it got me thinking about the types of things we are sharing with our followers on our social media outlets.
Since starting with network marketing I honestly have found it challenging at times to post more and become more active on social media. But it really is just about finding the right balance and it does get easier when you have something to share you are really passionate about.
However, not all our thoughts (posts) are pure gold and quite frankly they don’t all need to be documented online and stored forever in the vortex that is the internet. So for those of you who have felt it challenging to post more frequently or post better updates, here are some things to consider before you decide to share your thoughts with 500+ of your Facebook friends.
- Keep it positive – by posting something negative you are inviting more negativity right back into your life.
- Keep it concise – while it sometimes may be hard to put how you are feeling or what you want to share into few words, try your best to get to the point without writing a whole novel.
- Include an image – it’s true what they say that a picture is worth 1000 words.
Oh and remember no amount of virtual contact can compare to a weekend of living in the moment with friends/family.
