Is the news making it difficult to get things done? Are you spending so much time on Facebook, you’re not getting tasks completed on time? All the news and all the politics stressing you out?
If you answered yes to any or even all of those questions, you’re not alone.
There are more and more reports out there right now about ways to de-stress and de-compress by doing less.
Less time on social media for instance. Less time looking at your phone. The average person looks at their phone more than a 100 times a day.
One recent story on line (of course) suggested cutting out your time on Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn for periods of time, suggesting that by doing that…. you can give yourself two hours more a day, 14 hours a week, to spend on getting things done and giving yourself more time to exercise, to do things you enjoy doing and relax.
Letting go of all the social media for a while, they say will also give you’re a chance to sharpen your focus and give time to spend more quality time with the people in your life.
Now you’re thinking how do I do that? I can’t just shut down. That’s true, if you’re like most people, you still want to be informed and you want to know what’s going on.
We all know too much of almost anything can get to be too much.
And while cutting out social media altogether may not be the best idea in today’s world, cutting back is probably good for all of us.
In other words maybe it’s time to unfriend yourself.
