  1. Re not being crushed by your newsfeed: Took facebook off my phone a few days ago and it was such a good idea. I still have the messenger app (it works better for group texting), but not the main facebook app. I’ve been browsing through it while I eat breakfast but otherwise ignoring it and I am just. so. much. calmer. Instead I’ve been focusing on getting my news from NPR and from my google play newsfeed.

    On an unrelated note, these “seven minute” and “one minute” workout headlines are completely misleading. It’s just interval training. No one is actually saying you can work out for only one minute (or seven) and see any benefits whatsoever. It’s clickbait and it’s obfuscatory and annoying.

  2. I have also STOPPED useing Facebook from my i-phone. There is to much going on to be abel to see thing’s. I still use Facebook from my macbook air and my ipad, but that is different. I think we all need to slow down a bit to smell the roses. We MUST enjoy our free time OFF-LINE. YAY!!!
