Ever find yourself mindlessly scrolling on your phone only to leave you feeling inadequate, unhappy, lonely and unmotivated?

Looking for a few ways to stop scrolling? Practice these 3 self-care social media tips!
Identify what you’ll consume. This includes who you’ll follow or unfollow or maybe even block. Choose what resonates with you and what you want to see on your daily feed.
- What you see on a daily basis becomes part of who you are and how you think.
Set a time when you’ll check-in on social media.
- Instead of picking up the phone automatically between meetings and scrolling – decide that you’ll use the phone during lunch only to scroll or after work or a time that fits for you
- Schedule this in your planner if you have to (no judgement) : )
Set a timer for how long you want to consume social media
- Some social media apps have a reminder you can set in settings.
- Make a commitment that when that timer comes up you’re off social.
