Steal Back Time From Social Media

stop letting socials steal your time

Social media. The one thing in this world that seems to consume our time more than anything else. But it doesn’t have to! Cari Cole would tell you to, “Stop Letting Socials Steal Your Time and Get Back to Making Music.” There are a few actions you can take to get away from social media and back into your music. In this article, she helps us explore those options and get back to doing what we love.


You know when you log onto social media to post about your music or catch up on friends posts, and suddenly an hour (or two) of time goes missing? Yeah. That. Well, you were basically sucked up into an alternate universe, and that one post turned into hours — and kind of hours that were lost. You weren’t working on your music, you got lost in the sea of information. Easy to do!!!


Cari makes a great point about being “sucked up into an alternate universe.” We have all experienced what she is talking about here. You want to look at one picture your friend posted and then all of a sudden it’s two hours later and you’re watching a video of a cat and a cucumber. So, how can we avoid this? Cari suggests:


1. Schedule Social Media Time

Yep. Put limits on the time you spend on socials. I know it’s anal, but if you want your time back, you’d best do it. 10 min minimum, 30 min max, 3 times a day.


This is such a great idea. Set a timer to help limit yourself; there is no shame in doing so! We are all sucked into the social media universe far too easily, so it’s time to make a change. Let’s get back to following our passion and stop wasting precious time scrolling on a screen.
