Say "No" to Social Ma FOMO

It’s time to embrace the anti-hustle lifestyle and do away with the need to ALWAYS be connected on social media. You know what I’m talking about. As long as cell phones and social media exist, you are always going to be connected in some way or another.

I understand that many of you do business from your phone, but you don’t need to be tied to it 100% of the time. At some point in time, you need to flip the switch to “off”. There are a few things that you can do to embrace the anti-hustle lifestyle and learn how to disconnect for the benefit of you and your family.

 

Get rid of social media apps from your phone. 

You do not need to share your life at that exact moment. For example, a lot of celebrities on Instagram never post things in real-time. They don’t want you to know where they’re at. So they record things on their camera, and then they upload them either a day later or later that night. You can achieve this same thing by getting rid of social media apps on your phone forcing you to wait until you are at your computer to upload.

 

I want you to try to embrace unplugging from social media.

I deleted Facebook from my phone, and I can tell you it has been one of the best things. So I’m still very active on Facebook, but I go into my office, get on my computer, and I get on Facebook. I don’t need to be on it on my phone when I’m out to dinner or when I’m just sitting at home or going for a walk.  Try it! Delete the damn app off your phone. Don’t just turn off the notifications. Get rid of it. The next one coming off my phone is Instagram. 

 

Go and enjoy life off of social media.

Be present. Nobody needs to see your kid at their play at the exact moment, the food you are eating, or you talking on your phone while you’re waiting in your car. Record the video and post it later. If you have a minute, use different apps to record it to get the information out there, but you can post it later from your office and then walk away from it. 

 

Let’s eliminate the hustle. 

It’s time to eliminate the need to be constantly connected to everything. We do not need to be constantly connected and “on” every single minute. Let’s normalize the anti-hustle way of life and the fact that you don’t need to respond to your message right now. 

Out of sight, out of mind applies here. I’m telling you it is one of the most amazing things that you can do for your mental health. Eliminate the endless scrolling that drives imposter syndrome. 

 

Social media boundaries are good.

My Facebook group hasn’t tanked in engagement because I haven’t been on there. It’s not like my engagement on my Facebook personal page has tanked because I’ve deleted it off of my phone.  I still spend a fair amount of time on it during business hours, and that’s okay. 

Could you delete social media from your phone? Better yet…would you do it? Could you do it even just for 48 hours?  Try it on a weekend and just see how your mood lifts.  See how you feel about it. 

 

There is definitely some social media FOMO in the beginning.

But it goes away fast. Especially when you get wrapped up doing your own thing, having fun, and just enjoying life. The FOMO goes away because you should be more worried about missing out on the actual moments, than what XYZ person is eating for lunch. 

So can we just actually embrace that the FOMO is that you’re missing out on being present? Why do you care about what other people are doing in their life? Shouldn’t you be more worried about what’s happening in your own life? Seriously, your FOMO should be the fact that you’re missing out on your own moments. 

 

Embrace the anti-hustle. 

Challenge yourself to delete those social media apps! I’m going to delete those apps off my phone. So hold me accountable. Text me asked me if I deleted them! I’ll send you a screenshot.
