Using Social Media 

Social media has become part of everyday life and that won’t change anytime soon. It is the way that we stay connected to the people we care about. Along with the rest of the world. We can also find new friends and market or our businesses. If you don’t use social media responsibly, it can become stressful and overwhelming. You can take a break from your apps and try listening to a podcast.

Many people worry about the amount of likes and follows they get which becomes an unhealthy obsession. There are ways to use social media without letting it get to you. Use your phone to cell phone spy instead. Here are some tips for how to use social media in a healthy way:  

Curate Your Feeds

You can choose to “snooze” Facebook posts for a week, a month, or indefinitely. When your tired of seeing one friends post or even your uncles, just snooze them. That doesn’t unfriend them or let them know they’ve been snoozed. It gives you some peace of mind and a break from certain posts. On Twitter you can take similar steps to curate your feed. 

Take A Social Media Break

Sometimes it gets too overwhelming to be on social media. When you notice yourself getting angry and overly sensitive about something posted, it’s time for a break. Remove all those apps from your phone and tablet for a period of time. Everyone needs a break so give yourself a social media break once in a while to clear your mind.
