Podcast Episode 8 – Is Social Media Controlling your life? How to Facebook on Purpose
I made a conscious decision to live my best mom life. I intentionally create a life that is filled with peace, calm and tranquility. I avoid things that don’t lend itself to my intention.
One steps i’m taking is to use social media on purpose by setting social media limits
What does that mean? I made a conscious decision to not spend wasteful time on social media. Have you ever checked the screen time function on your smart phone? I did and I could’t believe how much time I was spending on social media. When you add a couple minutes here and there it adds up to be a lot.
As a blogger, social media is a big part of my purpose. I promote published blog posts, I engage with my followers, and I build relationships with other moms and other bloggers.
On a personal level, I love connecting with my friends and family. I enjoy seeing their family pictures and watching their kids grow. It’s a nice way to keep up with people’s lives.
I also love talking about things like the latest housewives shenanigans.
On the other hand, there are a lot of negatives to social media.
- It can cause us stress, anxiety and even depression
- It can set unrealistic expectations
- There’s cyberbullying
- It can cause unhealthy sleep patterns
- FOMO anyone?
- It can create a negative body image by constantly comparing ourselves to others
- It can cause disagreements which lead to arguments and even an end to a friendship
As with anything else in life, it’s all about balance.
Here are some steps I have been taking and how you too can Facebook on Purpose:
1. Don’t scroll social throughout the day.
2. Customize your newsfeed that aligns with your purpose.
3. DO NOT go on Facebook first thing in the morning or right before going to sleep.
4. Turn off notifications.
