Most of us know what not to eat and drink to stay healthy. But what we put into our heads is MORE important that what we put into our bodies.

List out all the other things you do for at least 2 hours every day.


๐Ÿ’ค Sleep

๐Ÿšง Work

๐ŸšŒ Drive

๐Ÿ” Eat

๐Ÿ“บ Watch TV


But do you exercise 2 hours every day?

Do you read for 2 hours every day?

Do you talk to your spouse for 2 hours every day?

Do you spend 2 hours of intentional time with your kids every day?


I'm willing to bet that the answer is NO to any or all those questions.


I'm not going to judge you on your current choices because I'm no better. I love binging on TV, video games, and YouTube.


I've gone to bed late because I couldn't get enough of "Hot Ones" or "Tasting History".


I'm sure you have your own stories.


But what I want to highlight is what are we doing to ourselves by binging on this stuff.


Studies have shown that the negative affects of binging on social media include:

And that is even before you dove into that blog about "Finally, proof that the Earth is flat!!!".


I guess the real question that needs answering is WHY do we binge on this crap?

Its the same reason we binge on chips, or chocolates.

We get restless when we are left alone with our thoughts.

Or we don't like what we see so we choose to distract ourselves.


Social Media is the new Soap Opera.

Just like there are consequences for living on a diet of McDonalds so too are the consequences of living in Instagram.


What do you want to be doing with that extra 2hrs a day?
