The internet can open us up to so many things that we would have never seen otherwise. There's funny animal videos, plant parent groups, and information on movements. But there's also hate speech, harassment, misinformation etc.
The internet can also divide our attention and make us feel fragmented.
Social media companies are competing for the attention of consumers. They design the app or platform so that you want to spend more time on their app.
It's essential to take a step back and think about the nature of the relationship with social media. Consider your part and responsibility in balancing your digital diet.
We may think that our time on social media is not a real experience but a superficial habit that doesn't really count.
However, if we're going to have a healthier relationship with social media, we need to start thinking of it as meaningful.
It can be helpful to take the time to improve your appearance in your digital space.
Every once in a while, include breaks into your social media routine to keep a sense of balance. These breaks serve the same function as a sabbatical or vacation from work.
