Smart Social Media Use

I love social media and the way it opens doors. I love the way it helps me stay in touch with people who I would probably never communicate with apart from Facebook. However, I noticed with a lot of people, social media leads to a lot of stress, drama and unhappiness in their life. If this is the case for you, I think these rules will be helpful:

1. Don’t air your dirty laundry. Got an issue with someone? Call them or talk face to face. Posting your private problems creates unnecessary stress for others (and yourself) and fives them unneeded information.

2. Think before you share. Consider your motives. Could it be wounding to another person? Even a little? If so, don’t post it.

3. Ask yourself – is it good, lovely, useful, funny, encouraging, or otherwise positive? If not, don’t post it.

4. Pursue intimacy in real relationships. Invite a friend for dinner or go out for a walk or coffee. Talk.

5. Spend your emotional energy wisely. Don’t follow (or put on ignore) people who stress you out or depress you, or who you compare yourself to all the time in a negative fashion. This includes your family.

6. Find sites or people to follow who make you laugh, encourage you or inspire you and follow them.
