Relieve Stress By Reducing Technology and Social Media
“Everybody gets so much information all day long that they lose their common sense.” ―Gertrude Stein
This month it is our intention to share ideas and tips to help live your best life even if you have stress. Let's be frank as we begin today that most people are living with stressors of one kind in our modern life.
There are however strategies to help relieve stress and today our topic is Ideas to Help Reduce Technology and Social Media To Relieve Stress.
What we have found is that it really is important to be aware of the stress you are living with. Once you realize the stress, take a breath and without adding more stress, decide what options you have within you to reduce it and one of the best ways to manage your stress is to ensure that your mind and body are not getting bombarded by the negativity of social media.
You see social media can be your best friend or your worst enemy, and more often than not, both at the same time. Social media does have its benefits, such as helping you to stay in contact with long-distance family and keep connected with friends and co-workers. Unfortunately, it can also be detrimental to your mental health.
If you are anything like me maybe you ever noticed that your stress is worse on days when you spend a lot of time on Instagram, Facebook, or any of the other social media platforms? This is because social media rarely has good news. We are finding this especially true in the last year and a half. These platforms are sources of stress whether from the latest tragedy in your city or state, political or religious debates, or just drama with people you know in your life or that you work with.
What we are finding these days is social media has become really toxic and doesn’t help someone who is already dealing with a good deal of stress. Now might be the perfect time to start cutting back on using Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and any other social media sites you frequent.
We have been doing this over the past few months and it has been a wonderful way to put our focus on many other things that we enjoy, for example getting out for a walk outdoors, practicing journaling and writing more, learning a new language and spending more time with family.
