Make social media work for you
It may seem like the only friends we have are the “friends” on social media. What a time to be alive?! It’s almost as if Covid-19 had the perfect timing – not health wise but friend wise. Imagine social distancing in the 90s – scary stuff! But, however positive this space might be for us, there are times when it isn’t and this is why we would like to share the following with you.
- Log off!
Sometimes, it may be a good idea to switch off all devices. Take a break, think about everything that you are consuming and come to your own conclusions and not just take on an opinion that you may not even agree with.
- Be intent about what you choose to see
It’s very easy to get caught up in the lives of others, to the point that their lives are consuming your own. Perhaps, move away from the noise that you don’t need in your life. Think carefully about what you want to see on social media. Tune into things that resonate with you.
- Make time for social media
Instead of aimlessly scrolling on social media and feeling extremely underwhelmed with how you spend your time, try allocating time to spend on these platforms. This can help you reduce your usage and your data!
- Maintain a balance
Time away from social media can be great for your mental health but time on social media can also be very beneficial, especially if you’re running your own business. It’s always important to maintain a balance in whatever you do.
- Choose a platform that works for you
Choose social media platforms that work for you. Remember, you do not have to be on every social media platform because they are available to you. Choose ones that speak for you and where their culture reflects your values.
We hope this helps you 🙂
