Self intervention of your choice – Montana Tasker

For this assignment, I chose to delete all forms of social media on my phone. I had a hard time choosing what I wanted to do for my self intervention, but while I was thinking about it I realized that my phone consumes most of my free time. I decided to do this over thanksgiving break, not knowing how difficult it would be due to the fact that I had so much free time on my hands. At first, I would go on my phone to go open instagram or snapchat and then I would realize that I had deleted the apps – a good reminder of this project. Once a few days had gone by, I stopped thinking about social media as a whole. Never once did I feel like I was missing out. By the time thanksgiving rolled around, I was leaving my phone in my room all day and just enjoying time with family and friends. It was nice to get a break from being attached to a screen all day long, and I found it to be a lot easier than I thought it would be. I think that deleting social media helped me be more in touch with what was going on around me and pay more attention to the people I care about. I definitely would recommend for people to do this, it really clears ones mind and makes you focus on things bigger than social media.
