Despite a majority of people being at home, I've noticed a huge drop in engagement on Instagram.
While I'm sure there are multiple reasons behind it, I can't help but wonder if it's because of the constant reminders of Covid-19.
As someone with anxiety, when this all first started, just seeing that word would trigger some type of nervous system response for me. So I had to avoid my phone and social media for my own sanity. I would post just as a way to say "hi", but I didnt stick around beyond that.
It took sometime to learn/realize that I can shift my energy and outlook. I'm happy, and safe, in my home. I dance in the sunlight that peaks through my windows - I surround myself with things that give me joy - and I shut out the unnecessary noise. I might not be able to control what's going on in this world - but I can control how I respond to it.
