This week we’re talking about a social media challenge that we created called the Insta 100 Challenge! To listen, click on the player below or go ahead and subscribe on iTunes right here.
So what the heck are we talking about – what does “Insta 100” mean? Well, we can explain the whole challenge in one sentence:
Reduce the number of people you’re following on Instagram to 100 or less.
Whoa! Kind of a wacky idea, right? Especially if, like Laura and I were, you are currently following 300+ people right now.
But the reality is, doing this “challenge” was totally in line with our values of abundance, being essential, and spending less time on social media. We felt like our Instagram accounts were holding us hostage! We constantly felt behind, like we needed to catch up, like we were missing out on something, like our lives weren’t measuring up in some way.
The challenge helped us to kind of break away from those not-so-great feelings, so we wanted to share it with our listeners if this is something you’d be curious to try.
One thing that’s important to mention is that we’re not saying to arbitrarily cut people out just for the sake of it! This “challenge” is all about being more mindful and truly consider how things (yes, including your social media accounts!) make you feel and how they line up with your values.
Tune into the episode to learn more! And if you do end up trying the challenge (in whatever way that looks like for you!!), please let us know in the comments below! Or you can get in touch with us @GreenGuineaPigs on Twitter or Instagram.
Thanks for listening! We appreciate you very much.
