Navigating social media wellness is hard, especially with everything happening in our world right now. We’re all facing struggles that we’ve never experienced before. It’s imperative that we take the time to practice proper wellbeing and self-care, and incorporate it into our daily routines. Being more mindful of both our physical and mental needs during these difficult times is extremely important now more than ever before.
As we navigate through the “new normal” with our lives still uprooted, new routines formed, and WFH’s still happening globally, we are forced to look internally and introspectively into our lives combating challenges that have arisen as a result of COVID-19.
Developing stronger wellbeing may help you combat difficult feelings and emotions such as, but not limited to: anxiety, fear, a sense of disruption, irritations with others, feeling stuck, feeling overwhelmed, or restricted.
Let’s get into it!
Other things that may help you could be:
Is your screen time too high? Anxiety while you’re not on your phone? It’s time to disconnect. It’s important to take time away from devices each day and focus on the presence and what is around you. Disconnecting means taking time for yourself and ensuring that you don’t get lost in what is going on within the world, don’t get consumed by media and pop culture, and most importantly ensuring yourself that you feel content and aware, without virtual stimuli.
As we move forward in life, and the “new normal” with the pandemic, social injustice movements, and world issues happening around us, it’s important to continue to limit your screen time, as well as your children, if that applies to you. Going forward, you can Incorporate meditation, self-reflection, or physical activity to help keep your mind clear and at ease. This will allow you to help remove the “noise” of daily life. Other things you can ensure you pay close attention to is letting go of vanity metrics that live on social media channels, such as Likes, Comments & Engagement, and focusing on positive relationships and channels of communication.
