I usually observe the season of Lent. We actually used to refer to it a “lint” when I was a kid, sometimes religious seasons sound too much like mundane fuzz from the dryer. However, I don’t usually give up things for Lent, in the past I have when I felt like I needed to refocus and something was getting in the way.
Typically people will give up something they consume that’s not the best for them like caffeine, alcohol, junk food or pop. In the past few years, I’ve noticed that people have started giving up activities that pull their attention away from the important thing, usually it’s Facebook. One main problem with giving up Facebook for many that I know, is people forget how to contact you and assume that Facebook is the only way. (If a friend has given up Facebook for Lent and you want to reach them, pick up the phone!)
