Limit your use of social media

Limit your use of social media

Commit to not checking social media during meals with family and friends, and when playing with children or talking with a partner. 

Make sure social media doesn’t interfere with work, distracting you from demanding projects and conversations with colleagues. In particular, don’t keep your phone or computer in the bedroom–it disrupts your sleep.

Do you notice that you get a craving to look at Instagram whenever you’re confronted with a difficult task at work? 

Experiment with using your favorite online platforms at different times of day and for varying lengths of time, to see how you feel during and after each session. 

Pruning some “friends” and adding a few motivational or funny sites is likely to decrease the negative effects of social media.

Even a five-day or weeklong break from Facebook can lead to lower stress and higher life satisfaction

When used thoughtfully and deliberately, social media can be a useful addition to your social life, but only a flesh-and-blood person sitting across from you can fulfill the basic human need for connection and belonging.
