Three Symptoms That Indicate You May Be About To Do An Instagram Live

As more people across the country are stricken with the urge to do an Instagram Live, it’s important that you know the warning signs. Once you sense that you may soon succumb to the trend, it’s important to isolate and prevent yourself from infecting others with the idea. Here are the symptoms that you might be on the verge of going live:


You Have a Throat Tickle

If your throat is getting itchy, you just may be on the verge of going live on Instagram, and prompting your friends to ask you questions about your past as you give them a tour of the contents of your freezer. When you feel this tickle, get yourself some warm liquids so that you can soothe the urge.



You Feel Anxious or Excited

Any adrenaline you’re feeling could signal you’re about to go live on Instagram and start performing Seasons of Love from Rent. It is best that you close your eyes and take some deep breaths. Then put your phone in another room, look around and start naming five things you can see, four things you can touch, three you can hear, two you can smell, and one thing you can taste. Don’t pick up your phone again until you feel calm.


You’ve Recently Come in Contact With Someone Who’s Watched or Read the News

Hearing third hand about the news can immediately give someone the urge to do an Instagram live, in an effort to inform others about what is happening in the world. Do not overestimate your abilities when you feel this sensation coming on. It is a common delusion of the sickness. Take a moment to quarantine yourself from other people before you start spreading misheard disinformation.


Whether you are having all or none of these symptoms, the urge to Instagram live can strike at any time. Be vigilant. Do it for all of us.
