In the day of social media and the internet it can be hard to unplugging from social media.  On any given day I am on my phone, watching TV, and on the computer ALL AT THE SAME TIME.  Sometimes we get so consumed in the internet and worrying about what is going on, on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter that we forget to actually live our lives. As a Christian I have learned that it is in the quiet places, when you are still, and not consumed with the things around you that God can talk to you.  That is why it is important to cut out all the other influences of social media and actually listening to the holy spirit (see blog here).

 So Here is The Christian’s Girls Guide To Unplugging from Social Media

Go Camping or rent a Cabin that does not have the internet of TV 

Some ideas for going camping or renting a cabin include having a fire at night and roasting some smores.  Going hiking or walking on the nature trail.  Some sites even have on site activities like a water park, pool, lake, or zip lining you can participate in. And the fact that there is no Wi-Fi or internet takes away all of the temptation to get plugged into the internet. And as an added bonus since you are in natural it would be a good idea to go on a prayer walk (see my blog here) as well.

Spend Time In Meditation or Journaling.

How can you ever hear yourself think if you always have a distraction going on around you?  Often times it is good to hear your own thoughts and write down how you feel.  Social media and the internet can convolute our emotions because someone else is always putting something on social media which effects our own thoughts. The best way for me to talk to God is to actually write down my thoughts and me feelings and then write down God’s response to what I am writing.  An added bonus to this is that you can always come back and read it again and again for encouragement and inspiration.

Spend time with God.

“But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then you’re Father, who sees what is done The Christian's Girls Guide To Unplugging from Social Mediain secret, will reward you.” Matthew 6:6

I do not feel that you literally need to go into a closet in pray.  I mean you can if you want but is not necessary.  The bigger point is get to yourself without any people or distractions around you and just pray and talk to God, focus on building a relationship with Him.  You may receive clarity on what He wants you to do in this season of your life since you are not distracted.

Pamper Yourself.

“A wife of noble character who can find? She is worth far more than rubies.” Proverbs 31:10

The thing about rubies is that they are really pretty and shiny.  So if you want to consider yourself a ruby I see nothing wrong with taking care of  yourself.  I used to get my nails done, a pedicure, and my hair done all in one day.  Which would pretty much take up the whole day. Before I became a mom.  But even now I do try to take care of myself.  Your body is a temple, right? So you mind as well take care of it. You can go to the spa, get a massage, or a facial.  It will help you relax and it is also good for your body.  You can also have a spa day at home (click here on my blog about how to have a spa day at home).

Read

You can find a good book to read, that will actually improve and help you. I would skip out on the erotica and maybe find a good Christian book to read.  One in which it will actually help you grow spiritually.  I have a few suggestions on really good spiritual books that I love to read.
