Scrolling though your Instagram or Facebook feed can temporarily transport you to another place. Maybe one of your friends went to Greece recently and you fall into an album of beach pictures, white houses with blue roofs, and stunning views of the Mediterranean. Or maybe another friend has been documenting their meals at restaurants around town and you see plate after plate of organic, fresh, beautifully arranged food.
You might think, “These people are living the life! I want those things!” and decide to book a trip to Italy this summer. Or hey, why not try that new sushi place for dinner tonight?
