I… am addicted to Instagram.

Well, more hopefully, I like to think that I was – that I’ve somehow broken out of my ‘addiction’. Ok maybe kinda perhaps turned down the severity, to a degree.

You probably don’t need to read another one of those “Social media is ruining the mental health of the entire world” stories, and that’s not what this is about.

This is just a quick check-in with you to ask:

Hey, do you need to tone it down a bit? Is there more life out there waiting to be lived if you just cut it back just a little bit? Or even less than that, is there another app or activity you can use to replace the time?

Too much of a good thing is rarely a good thing.

For me, one way I’m dealing with this is to make sure that I’m not following too many people – that my feed doesn’t constantly hit me with new content. The new “You’re all caught up” feature helps, too. If the fridge is still empty from when you checked it just an hour ago, there’s nothing left to check, right?

Anyway, there’s no better time than now for a quick self check-in.

Hope you’ve got it under control.
