Having too much time on the computer is not good for your mental health.
Unfortunately, there’s no going back, and ending social media, for now, is the best you can do.
On social media, your identity is based entirely on your activities. So there’s always pressure to put forward your best version of yourself.
It’s become as much about sharing experiences, photos, and videos as it is about what you say.
So we present to you the more toxic types of posts that are not only bothersome to you but everyone else too:
Being regularly constipated is uncomfortable, especially when you have to repeatedly sit down and strain your muscles to release the hardball of poo that’s just stayed there for days.
People have let their constipation become so bad that it becomes debilitating and they’re considered to be “chronic.”
Many people are only comfortable sharing positive emotions, positive experiences, or healthy experiences on social media.
However, if you post that you’re constipated on social media, you may come across as lazy and unhealthy.
On social media, we like to be behind the “perfect” curtain and it’s considered socially acceptable to post about our bad days.
But what you say about your bad days online is much more likely to be perceived as a reason to kick you while you’re down than a sign that you’re actually having a bad day.
Social media makes us feel bad about ourselves because we feel like our real lives are mundane and uninteresting.
It’s easy to compare our lives to our social media feeds. Social media makes us feel bad about ourselves because we feel like our real lives are mundane and uninteresting.
This means that even though we may feel like our lives are going ok, we compare them to others as if our lives are nothing but a pile of shit.
Take a moment to post something positive, but don’t stress too much about whether or not you’re posting something negatively online too.
The time of year
January is a particularly challenging month for people. By this time, a lot of us are tired and weary from the holidays and the post-holiday blues.
We’re already in a state of mind that is no way to spend the rest of the year.
It’s normal to feel tired in January and to feel that life is a bit less than cheery. We are physically and emotionally drained and it can be hard to get up and get going every day.
When January rolls around and it’s cold, bleak, and grey outside, it’s easy to find yourself with a sort of “depression”.
We often feel lethargic and moody, which means that even if we don’t want to be in bed all day long, we find ourselves there.
This lethargy is usually exacerbated by the January weather because even though we’re trying to motivate ourselves to get out and get things done, we don’t feel like we’re having a good enough day to do so.
If you’re feeling this way, it may be difficult to find the motivation to get out of bed, get ready for work and go out.
Just be sure to give yourself credit for the small things that you do every day.
The idea is to try to give yourself rewards for doing positive things. It can be as simple as a nice cup of tea, a good book, a manicure, or a massage.
This list is by no means exhaustive
In my opinion, the idea is to think of the more toxic behaviors to stop right now.
Think about what you’re doing that can negatively impact the health and happiness of others.
Then, change that behavior before you spread toxic content in the New Year.
There is plenty of negativity in the world. It can be overwhelming and exhausting at times.
If you feel overwhelmed, remember that it’s not your fault, but rather a product of a society built on the idea that the more people feel bad, the more that will happen.
Now is the time to repair that damage and be a positive, loving part of the community.
Some tips for being less social media use include:
1. Consider only posting photos of people that you know
It is unlikely that people are going to unfriend you on social media if they do not like your photos, but they may unfollow you.
This may seem harsh, but unfollowing people is better than unfriending them. You will save time and space on your friend’s list.
2. Limit the time you spend on social media
You may think that you can still stay on social media all day, but it will just make you depressed.
Cut back on how much you are on social media so that you can have a break and not be stressed out about it.
3. Set a time limit
Some apps will limit your time on social media apps so that you can enjoy them more.
4. Don’t spend too much time on social media
If you are scrolling through Instagram and Facebook and other social media, you are not really experiencing life.
You may feel pressure to scroll through your feed and view as many likes as possible because everyone else is.
There is too much pressure on social media to make you feel happy and to keep you entertained.
Use social media as a tool for connecting with people you care about, but do not let it become your whole life.
