How To Live Every Day Like You're In A Social Media-Free World

The ability to leave your reality with simply the click of a button has created an insatiable craving for instant gratification. Thanks to mobile technology, social media and a plethora of apps, the ability to live life vicariously through a global lens is but a fingertip away.

There was a time when one would have to wait for people to return from remote locations in order to learn about their experiences. But now, you can FaceTime someone in Cape Town, South Africa with ease. But the only truth in life is the moment you are living in right now.

The past is a story waiting to be told, and the future is a story you're waiting to live. The now is all we have. Tomorrow will always be influenced by the way we live today.

The ability to get inspired by other people and their experiences is the thing that makes us human in this global village called Earth. Thankfully, we are able to share these experiences in a greater, overarching manner due to technology. However, if the reality of being constantly plugged in is leaving you in an empty space or depleted of the motivation you need to continue on in your journey, the apple you're biting into may be a poisonous one.
