Bleak Emotional Life for Me without Social Media

What would life be without blogs, Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest?  For me?  Dismal. Certainto make me  crankier ,  if that is possible, and it is.

List of why Facebook helps those aging stay in touch

I did this Poster Coach several weeks ago to encourage some of my aging friends to join the ranks of the social media users.

I did not plan to blog today, but this Word Press Daily Prompt inspired me. Life After Blogs; Your life without a computer: what does it look like?

No worldwide connections, no reconnecting with old friends, no new friends, less exercise for my aging brain,  less learning, less sharing knowledge, less inspiration, fewer laughs,  less thinking about what matters, fewer ways to practice kindness, much less to be thankful for.

EMOTIONAL FITNESS TIP

Living to learn is the way to a healthy old age. The internet despite all its flaws is the best way to keep on learning. If someone you know is aging encourage them to become social media users.

PRACTICE KINDNESS

Thank you for all you do.  Thank me by remembering sharing is caring; so is liking, or commenting. Your caring keeps me going.

  1. Now that I am living in Spain, social media is even more important for me. We just had our 39th anniversary and received 149 likes and 77 comments on facebook. As nice as it would have been to see everyone, our house would not have been big enough! My 87 year old mother has been Skyping with me. A blessing indeed.
