Media Fast Day Seven- Work Must Go On

Day seven of my fourteen day media fast where I don’t watch TV, listen to music, watch movies, stalk people on social media, or listen to the news. 14DayMediaFast
I own and operate a few small businesses. All of which utilize free advertising via social media. This for me means I must respond and make posts in order to get more customers and subscribers. I have to say it’s hard, but not impossible to use Facebook as a tool and not get caught up in everyone else’s lives. One way that I make it work is to quickly exit out of the screen in which everyone’s updates and posts are located. Don’t even look because if you are like me, you will be drawn in, page after page. Instead determine a purpose before logging on, execute that purpose, then sign off. For me I mostly respond to comments or likes, post, or check if there are new likes, then I have to shut it down. Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and others can be time wasters, but they can also be unbelievable tools for business. We didn’t realize the impact on brand recognition with our first startup, but we are well aware and taking advantage now. If you don’t own or operate a business, a break may be more well-suited for your life. Either way, make social media work for you instead of waste your time.

    In short wanted to share my 14-day media fast experience; it’ll end tomorrow. Though I’m unsure how much he participated, my 12-year old did it with me. And I also realized a friend of mine started hers the same day I did-she’s the one for the inspiration in the first place.

    This fast been relatively easy-in my opinion much easier than a food fast. The faith of which I’m part we’re very much into eating-lol. God has done many things through this fast; He’s given me peace over things that plagued my mind; we’ve had serious back and forth conversations which lined up with His Word and not my own thoughts. I’ve felt a closer walk with Him. He’s been worth it and He’s awesome.

    I’m definitely going to continue on this track and further discipline my mind. It’s worth keeping my close relationship with Jesus.
