Some people fast from social media during Lent. This can be a very effective way to regain wasted time. But if you are not fasting from social media, consider posting an inspirational religious message.
This is a really good Lenten practice for teenagers and adults to try. It can be a little uncomfortable and intimidating at first if you are not used to posting religious messages. Many Catholics find it challenging to evangelize, but this can be an entry level way of doing it. It might start some conversations about your faith, so be prepared to speak simply and confidently about what you believe.
