Surprisingly, it turns out that I kinda love Instagram. I can scroll through someone’s timeline and, without any words, understand what they like and prioritize. The photos create a vibe. More than other social media platforms, it feels intimate and individualistic. How we choose to present ourselves is quite telling.
Here’s why Instagram can be a life coaching tool:
If we snap a pic each time we change locations or every 60 minutes, our timelines would represent our reality. We would get an accurate view of how we allot our time. Do we spend enough time with the kids? Are we doing something that elicits a feeling of dread? You’ve probably been saying for a year that you’re gonna shop at the organic market, yet there you are at Shoprite. (I don’t mean to call you out.)
Next week I’ll post my reality timeline. Maybe I’ll make Southern California traffic look romantic. (There’s a photo filter for that!) Or maybe I’ll just represent my time in the car with an image of my dogs in the backseat.
