The politician, the Cat/ Dog, the drinker, the selfie-absorbed, the cute couple, the promoter, the play-by-play, the old person, the do-gooder, the traveler, the baby mama, the boy/girl who cried wolf, the fitness Fanatic, the sport blogger, the foodie, the perfect one, or the creep?
Facebook is not all about entertainment or killing time, but it can be a positive way to connect to those around you, and provide motivation to better yourself. We cannot control the negativity the world radiates, but we can control what we surround ourselves with.
Early 2015, I changed what I received through my news feed. I decided I want to see fitness related feed that is motivating. I set my news feed up to receive articles from fitness magazines, blogs by athletes, latest updates on race companies, funny video clips, and videos of others working hard to achieve their goals. I got rid of all news feed that was drama, negative, alcohol related, and statements that caused arguments. Might sound funny, but it worked and making the change motivates me to work harder! Every morning, I wakeup, I make my tea, my protein shake, sit down and log on to Facebook. Surprisingly, seeing these got me excited to go to the gym, stay on my diet plan, and stick to my goals every day.
No matter which one you are above or what your friends are, once awhile we all get tired of certain news feed and yet we catch ourselves waking up every morning or on lunch break surfing Facebook. Now that it is a new year, I challenge everyone to unfollow some of those unfavorable feeds and replace negative with positive. Why not join a group, follow a fitness magazine, a blogger, an athlete, or the gym you are a part of? Try it out for a month and see how it impacts your life!
