Are you trying to go without Facebook? Perhaps you need some motivation. Here are some "achievements" for those of you who are trying to spend time away from (a)social media. Print out these goals and hang it somewhere where you can keep track of your progress. Reward yourself when you hit a goal!
Date Started: ___________________________
A Day Without Facebook [ ]
Congratulations on going a whole day without Facebook. I hope it was by choice and not just because the wifi was down and your phone was missing.
A Week Without Facebook [ ]
Not bad. You have gone an entire week without Facebook. You have proven to yourself you can go a while without being on Facebook. Can you go longer?
A Month Without Facebook [ ]
Now you are getting more serious. If you have gone a whole month without Facebook you are probably noticing that you are spending your time more wisely. What have you accomplished?
Two Months Without Facebook [ ]
Well done. You should be proud. It is a big deal to go this long without Facebook. You are probably pretty serious about getting away from the site. Consider removing your account for good at this point.
Six Months (Half a Year) Without Facebook [ ]
You should go celebrate. If you are this far you might be free from the addiction! Treat yourself to something nice and keep up the good work!
One Year Without Facebook [ ]
There is no doubt that, having got this far, you have saved yourself much heartache and accomplished much more than if you were spending your time on Facebook. This is big. Few Facebook users get this far. You can continue to be Facebook free from here on out.
Two Years Without Facebook [ ]
If a person can go two years without logging onto Facebook after having been a member, you are very likely to not go back. It does not mean that it does not happen, but being away from Facebook for two years is amazing! It gets easier to be off Facebook every day from here on out. Enjoy your life the way it was meant to be lived!
You can make these goals more interesting by giving yourself rewards. For example, a vacation after the first year or two years without Facebook. A weekend getaway after six months. The choice is yours. The real reward, however, is the freedom you will find for yourself, and the changes you will see in both your physical and mental life.
