Happiness and Capturing the Moment

With the rise of social media, it has become the new normal to want to capture each moment. Often people joke, “If it wasn’t posted on Instagram, did it really happen?” The holidays are no exception. While it is nice to keep our followers posted on our festivities and also document for upcoming years, it is important to be mindful of the present. Challenge yourself to be aware of how much time you are spending to take a picture, picking a filter, coming up with the perfect caption, and then posting it. If too much time is being dedicated to your posts while with loved ones, consider posting at a later time so you are not losing out on real time events.
