Social Distancing

There’s quite a bit happening in the world right now. One doesn’t need to look far to find some form of unrest. It can take a toll on just about anyone.

I am testing a new way to maintain social distancing by minimizing my use of social networks.

Well, it’s somewhat new to me. Not so new for countless others. Many people are seeing the challenges with using services like Facebook and Twitter, especially in today’s age on a regular basis.

Breaking free from the digital rat race of FOMO.

There’s something refreshing about disconnecting. And while I don’t necessarily condone the idea of total social disconnection, (we’re social creatures, after all) it’s important to engage in positive communication. Not just happy-go-lucky, but not just doom-and-gloom, either.

Something I’ve read is that many people who break free from excessive social network use tend to find more meaningful relationships in person. Definitely not a bad thing.

Stay safe and healthy out there.

One thought on “Social Distancing

  1. This is so important! I think that although smartphones are really helpful in connecting us with other people, there is a misconception that these connections are always necessary, worthwhile, and of high quality. The fact is that social media often does us more harm than good, and finding the balance you described is essential to having a healthy relationship with our devices. Thanks for sharing this!
