Minimalism can change your life in many ways. Similarly, deleting social media is one of the most refreshing experiences in life. There will be no more time wasted on mindlessly scrolling through feeds and no more energy keeping up with the ongoing’s in people’s lives. There were many reasons behind my reason to shut down my accounts and many other’s are doing the same, or at least contemplating shutting down their accounts as well. The other day I wrote about “Why Social Media Isn’t For Me,” and today I’ve published a book to help others decide what’s next for them. This approach, based in minimalism, could change your life today.
Inside you will find compelling reasons for how deleting social media can enhance your life and how to delete social media.
I’ll include the final words from the book, entitled A Few More Perks To Leave Social Media. This is not an all-encompassing list but is how the book concludes, helping people take back their lives. Check out the book for even more ways to take your life back.
