Taking Breaks From Social Networks Like Facebook and Twitter Can Be Healthy

Do You Take Breaks From Social Networks?

Sometimes you don't realize you need a break from something until you actually get it, and you realize how nice it was to just have a little time away from an obsession.

Such was the case for me on a recent vacation where, while I didn't completely disconnect, I didn't have time to check in on my Facebook and Twitter accounts.

I didn't know who was on their way to an amazing party, I didn't see photos posted by distant family member, I saw no Facebook status-offs. I admit that there used to be a time when I'd try to catch up on every update I'd missed in the time I'd been logged off, but this time when I came back, I felt no need to scroll through days and days' worth of tweets and status updates.

And it's fine. I'm not suffering from social networking anxiety. I rather enjoyed it, in fact, and think that I will implement social network breaks in the future. Do you take these kinds of breaks?
