Step Away From the Screen and Bring Social Media to Life

Step Away From the Screen and Bring Social Media to Life

These days, anyone can get on social media using a computer, smart phone, or tablet. Social media is all around us, and it affects and consumes our lives. Do you ever want to try something different to bring social media to life? Here are three simple ways to do so.

1—Write a letter. Tired of only communicating with your family via Facebook? Try a more personal approach and write them a letter! Seeing a handwritten note instead of a pixelated status update will brighten their day. Get creative and use fun paper or stickers for an added element. You can include pictures with your letter just like you would on Facebook. Your family will not only be able to read about your latest trip or spontaneous adventure, they will also be able to physically see it and keep it.

2—Fill a photo album. Do you have pictures on your phone that you absolutely love but wouldn’t dare post on Instagram because it would ruin your theme? Well, print them out and put them in a photo album. Take it a step further and use one that has space to write about what is pictured. It’s just like posting to your favorite photo app, but better. Don’t worry about including the embarrassing pictures, they make for great stories to tell and memories to look back on!

3—Make a collage. Do you love Pinterest but get bored staring at a computer screen? Make a collage from all those magazines that are lying around your house. Flip through the pages, and stop to cut out anything that catches your eye. If you want to go a step further, create a themed collage. For instance, make one of only neutrals to go with your white and marble themed room. It’s the same as pinning an image to your Pinterest board but in real life! Once you have found all your images, glue or tape them to a sturdy piece of paper. Lastly, frame your new art piece and hang it above your bed for inspiration.
