Check your accounts
Do you know how many accounts you have online? Once you start looking at all of your social accounts, you may realize you have more than you thought. Social media is built into many of our favorite apps: Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat, Reddit, TikTok – the list goes on. Take a moment to look at what kinds of social media accounts you have, and reflect on how you use them. Ask yourself:
- What do I do while I’m on this app?
- Does it bring me joy, laughter, stress, anger?
- Does it add value to my life? How?
- Am I making meaningful connections here?
Social media accounts should be a place where you find connection, relief and feel uplifted. If you find that your social platforms are missing the mark, consider getting rid of them or use them less frequently. Unsure about deleting an account? See if you can deactivate it instead. This will temporarily remove your profile from the site without losing your account entirely. If you find that you miss it, you can always re-activate it later on.
