A simple question and your answer, you can find it in the same app. A fact to reflect, maybe. Learn more details in this note.
Digital health, a term that will be heard a lot in the future and that leads me to think, days ago, that I am spending a lot of time looking at photos on Instagram .
I wonder later if I get something very positive out of all this, what generates me and above all, the needs that I think I see ... so many beautiful things!
The desire to want to buy those clothes, those beautiful shoes, purses, food, exotic places to visit, the desire to travel and most likely not being able to do so, at least in the short term.
Another question I asked myself is whether most of the photos are real or many of them are a “fiction”, a mix perhaps… do people live life really extremely as happy as they show in each of their photos? (at least mostly), is everything so cute?
I can not deny that there is motivating content and that it would cost much more and the app would not be attractive if there would be many more photographs of "other realities" ... but hey, they are just issues that I question.
What I conclude in the end is that beyond all this I am investing (not to say, many times “wasting”) time seeing fashion photos, of known people or perhaps that I do not even know by simple boredom ... until sometimes I I do for inheritance, although it is entertaining, I can not deny it.
For this reason, I began to investigate a little and found a section in the application that allows to know the minutes that I was looking at photos on average for a week.
It is entered in the menu: "Your Activity" and is called "Instagram Time" .
The interesting thing is that in the same place it is possible to “limit” or manage the time in the social network, since a reminder can be programmed when the hours and / or minutes established there are exceeded.
It is a good measure, not as drastic as to stop using the application, to raise awareness (the same app proposes you to know this information!) ... and to remember that maybe you could be doing some other leisure activities, a little more "Productive": a nice chat with friends, a drink to share, a good book, a movie, physical activity ... music.
