You need a social media break and here’s why + awards!

hey its Arwa, welcome to the corner shop today we’re going to be talking about social media and why you need a break , this time FOR REAL!

why do you need a break?

#1 you feel anxiety when you’re not on social media, often when you or for that matter me feel anxiety of separation or missing out because you are not scrolling through posts or typing tweets. but do you actually realise that if you don’t scroll through posts or type tweets life isn’t going to stop, if you spend a little time on real life rather than online it wouldn’t kill:)

#2 you can’t put down the phone even when you’re with people, this has happened to me all the time. It was so difficult for me to put down my device as I believed social media was more fun. this led my friends and others around me too to think it was okay to scroll through their phone while having live company right near them. after my social media break I took it to keep my device aside and focus on my friends and guess what, its so much more fun!

#3 its the only thing on your mind, and you start comparing. it makes you feel insecure but its important to remember that everyone’s lives get messy despite how their feed looks like, upside downs are a part of life. and if any of these are a part of your lives then you DEFINITELY need a break!!

How is a social media break going to help you?

when you’re off social media you get to focus on other things like I got to focus on poetry (which you can read here ) you can focus on your hobbies, studies, friends etc. you can actually go down and interact with people and make new friends! It stops me from scrolling aimlessly, and I can use this time to be more productive. I can actually sleep earlier and wake up fresher as there are no distractions. Its almost like a burden has been lifted of your shoulders.


okay so today im going to be awards which I procrastinated about and never got about to do them 🙂


The Rules

First, thank you so much Addie @ shining star for the nomination please go do check out her blog! here are her questions:

1, If you could live on a different planet than Earth, which one would you live on? Why?

I think it would be Neptune, probably because it looks so beautiful from outside you know all swoon shades of blue! it would be like living in a mystical land haha

2, If you had one wish, what would it be for?

so if you don’t know already I have very high eye power and it makes it difficult for me to watch television or any sort of screen for a long time. so id probably want my power to reduce

3, What is one unique thing about yourself?

I think its probably that im approachable and easy to talk to:) I think I have fairly good communicative skills!

4, Would you rather own an island or a city?

of course an island! I live in the city so would love the former more! I love the idea of living in an island with water around! Islands are always a favourite of mine because im fond of water bodies I just love them hehe!

5, Would you rather become a musical artist or comedian?

ok that’s a tough one, so I think I prefer musical artist. because I recently read a book about music and its rich culture, heritage etc. and its so interesting, I would definitely want to be a part of that enriching history lol

6, What book have you read the most times through?

so I’m really fond of strong female characters in books like in the ‘Red Queen’ series so I have read it the most times through that is 3 (I usually despise re-reading books)

7, If you had to remove something from your life for a year, what would it be?

wow that’s interesting, id probably remove negativity from my life all year! it would make the year soo much better haha

Once again thank you Addie for the nomination and interesting questions, it was great fun answering them! now for my questions:
