What Can I Do During a Social Media Detox?
Become a Foodie -One of the first things, I vowed to myself I would do during my 1-week social media detox, was to try some of those delicious looking recipes I had saved on my Pinterest boards.
I reviewed some of my favorite recipes, and I purchased the ingredients and supplies I would need. Once I was finished prepping, I turned on my favorite playlist and had an excellent relaxing evening cooking and listening to my favorite music.
