How I Stay Positive

Published May 23, 2019 by Shay Taree

I know that everywhere you look there are always people, quotes, and everything in between telling you to stay positive. I also know that staying positive can be very difficult especially when things just aren’t going right. Trust me I definitely know this feelings but I do have some little tricks I use to try and stay positive.

Think of something exciting: It can be anything that’s happening that day, that week, or that month. It can be anything that I truly can’t wait for. Usually this takes my mind off of what is making me sad or upset for at least a little while.

Stay off social media: I notice that sometimes the feelings of negativity I have stem from social media. I start to scroll through pictures on Facebook and Instagram which starts the comparison game. I know that it’s difficult to not be on social media but try using an app that makes you happy such as playing a game or if you can try doing something that doesn’t require your phone like reading a book, writing, or anything else that you love.

Journal: Speaking of writing, one of the things I definitely do everyday is journal. I journal in the mornings before I start my day and I also journal at night. The reason why I journal is to set my intention for the day and also so that I can get any unwanted feelings or thoughts out of my head and on paper. It can definitely be a soothing and wonderful thing. If you like I can use a blog post dedicated to my journaling habits.

Spend time with people: Now when I mean spend time with people I mean spend time with people that inspire you. These people help to lift you up and they also make you feel at ease with who you are. I know for me I definitely have these people that I turn to. Even if you can’t spend time with them in person maybe you can talk to them on the phone or send them a text. Also feel free to let them know how you’re feeling. Usually talking to someone else can also help you put things in perspective and help you love/like yourself again. This can also be helpful if your not one for journaling.

Those are just some of the things I do to try and stay positive and I hope that these things help you. Also one thing I want to make sure I add is that I’m not saying that you should ever brush aside your feelings. I’m just trying to give helpful tips that I use to get you out of that slump. But it’s okay to feel these feelings and your feelings are valid. So if you have a day where you just feel sad it’s okay to feel that.

But let me know what you think of this blog post by commenting down below and also let me know if you have any topics you would like me to discuss!

What If Instagram Hid Likes?

Published April 25, 2019 by Shay Taree

So just last week I happened to read an article written by The Verge that talked about a unreleased feature from Instagram that would’ve hidden likes. The only person that would be able to view how many likes a post got would be the original poster.

The meaning of this feature was so that followers focused on the content you posted and not how many likes a post got.

Well after reading this article it got me thinking about how the platform would be very different if this feature existed. I feel like if this feature was around it would greatly reduce the comparison issue to some extent. I feel like so many of us focus on how many likes a picture we post gets compared to our friends that it makes us very careful of what we post for fear of it not getting a lot of likes.

Also I wonder if it would have a impact on how many people would have actually been discovered as influencers because of this feature. As many of us know a lot of brands look at which people have a lot of followers or likes on pictures and use this to their advantage when it comes to brand deals and things like that. Well what would it be like if you couldn’t see how many likes someone’s picture got? I think a lot of brands would not use Instagram as a platform for pushing a product so much and many Instagram models may no longer have a job.

I know many of y’all are probably thinking well what about followers we would still see that count. That is true but I feel like it would be unlikely to tell if these are legit followers or followers this person may have bought.

Overall if this feature existed I feel like Instagram would be a very very different platform. But to be honest I kind of wish that it existed. I wish that it was a feature that you could turn on or off.

So now I extend the question to you…Do you like the idea of this feature? Would you use this feature? Also how do you think this feature would affect the platform? Plus do you think it would be a start to helping to turn down comparison surrounding the likes or what a person posts? Let me know by commenting down below.

Social Animals Movie Review!

Published April 15, 2019 by Shay Taree

So this past week I watched a movie on Netflix called Social Animals. This movie was actually about 3 teenagers and their different experience when it came to social media. One kid uses his Instagram for photography and actually got pretty famous for it, another girl is trying to be an aspiring model, and the last girl it seems it just trying to survive in this world with social media.

It was honestly a very interesting movie to watch and actually seemed to be one of the realer documentaries that I’ve watched about social media. This is because it also showed the downsides to social media such as the bullying, people asking for nudes, also the issues with FOMO, and “social media rules”.

It made me think about how I use social media in my everyday life and what I should do differently. I definitely recommend checking out this movie since it was pretty interesting. If you are interested in watching it then it is available on Netflix and is about a little over an hour long.

So if you decided to watch it comment down below on your thoughts and also do so if you’ve already seen it.

Technology Downtime!

Published April 9, 2019 by Shay Taree

So a lot of times on YouTube I will watch videos where people discuss their nighttime routines or self-care routines and a lot of times they mention technology downtime.

Technology downtime is pretty much having some time before bed where you don’t engage with technology such as your phone, game system, tv, etc. Usually people use this time to read a book or journal so that going to bed is a relatively easy process or just so that they can think about things.

I honestly have yet to practice this. I am literally addicted to my phone. I mean I’m typing this up on my phone while sitting at my desk for work. I’m on it constantly so when I think of not engaging with it I start to sometimes get anxiety I guess. I started to realize that I use my phone for everything such as playing games and sometimes for even self-care but I know that it’s not healthy and social media plays havoc on my mental health.

So my question is if you currently practice downtime with technology what helps you? What do you do during that time and how long do you do it a day? 1 hour? 30 mins? Several times a day? Comment down below and let me know since I’m pretty interested in trying to do this.
