If we don’t consciously choose why we are interacting with these products, we permit them to turn our days into long bouts of slack-jawed navel-gazing. And that’s the problem: As useful and fun as social media can be, a quarantine is absolutely the wrong time to abdicate your mood and self-worth to an algorithm. Now more than ever, we need the nourishment of human connection, yet social media delivers all the nutrition of a TikTok — I mean a Tic Tac.
Those are great tips, Paul. I agree. Taking breaks isn’t usually sustainable, but being able to consciously make choices that align with our goals and who we want to be, will prove to be way more meaningful down the road. Thanks for sharing.
