How to be social media healthy

Social media can connect people and foster conversations with old friends. But it can also be an overwhelming and never-ending feed of news and views. Scrolling, liking, and re-sharing have changed how we keep up-to-date, interact with one another and how we see ourselves.

With social media, a lot of negative feelings come alongside the positive ones. You may feel like you always need to be on display, showing off an interesting life. For some people, it’s also massively time-consuming, in a way that doesn’t contribute to their sense of self-worth.

Top tips from the article:

  • The news: skip the fear of missing out: Try saying to yourself, “I know enough about that story. Do I know everything? No. I know enough. Good enough.”
  • Your friends: the comparison trap: Avoid feeling overwhelmed with friends’ posts by limiting where you see their updates to only one social media platform, like Facebook or Instagram.
  • Set some limits- and some goals: Consider using time formerly spent on social media for something you know is healthy. Take a course, start running, or volunteer. Healthy activities can help offset the feeling that you aren’t in control, while making a difference in your own well-being.
