How You Can Make Social Media Support Your Recovery
Social media is an amazing place that allows us to connect, and be seen, and heard, and laugh, and learn things that we might not otherwise get access to… But the reality is that social media has its cons, and some big ones!
And a big con is that I believe it has made anxiety recovery SO much more complicated than it needs to be! There are just so many pieces of advice, and tips, and tools out there, and not to mention some really unhelpful stuff! And it can all be so overwhelming right? And to add to the overwhelm, social media also breeds lots of confusion, and comparison, and not enoughness, and self-doubt.
So in this episode, I'm diving into 6 tips that will help you to make social media a more supportive and healthy place for you to hang out, and a place that is actually supportive of your recovery!
Here's a glimpse at the 6 tips I dive into in this episode:
Not every message is designed specifically for you, so don't try to make every message fit and be applicable to you and your recovery.
Don’t try to apply everything you read on social media.
Limit your intake of information! This includes... Doing a social media inventory. Limiting the accounts you follow. Setting health boundaries with social media. If something is triggering for you, set a healthy boundary.
Stop learning and APPLY!
Don’t allow social media to take away from YOUR knowledge, your insights, and your power.
Be cautious, even when somebody has credentials!
"Social media isn’t where the healing happens. The healing happens OFF of social media!"
