Have you ever thought about how to teach teenagers the right way to deal with their digital life? While these young minds can benefit from mindfulness-based activities for teens, many adults need the same.
People spend most of their day on social media. They are an important part of their lives. In fact, most family and friends find it helpful to stay in touch through social media.
But even here, using social media isn’t just a matter of communication. It has evolved in many ways. For some, it has become a platform where they can pretend to be someone else. So we have to be very careful. Conscious learning is something that everyone has to practice.
How does social media publishing affect you?
The image a person conveys of their life in social media is not the same as in real life. Even if we understand this, it’s easy to want us to live their lives instead of ours. It can be an easy wish, but it can be dangerous.
Comparing one’s life to that of others can lead to low self-esteem, fear, and even hatred. If these feelings are not addressed, they can lead to stress and depression. If you already suffer from these negative emotions, more negative thoughts will only make the situation worse.
What you need to understand is this: People live their lives in a certain way in real life and in another way online. Therefore, you have to be careful. Remember that their life may seem perfect in the digital world, but in real life, it has a very different story.
You don’t always tell the truth. Before you believe what you read, remember to keep a critical eye. Don’t fall into the trap of blind faith.
Be especially careful with the information you receive through social media, such as fake newspaper articles. If you allow these articles to get the best of you, it won’t help. Conscious learning should play a key role in how you deal with the various articles you read online.
Don’t believe what you read easily. Take the time to look closely and evaluate.
Tips for getting attention on social media
Although everyone is aware of the difference between Facebook and real life, people sometimes forget that the life they describe online is not the same as the one they live. But how can you learn to be more aware of your use of social media? How do you learn to separate your real life from what you publish on the Internet?
Here are some tips to help you:
Tip #1: State your intentions
Before you put anything online, you need to determine your intentions: Do you want attention, recognition, appreciation, approval, assurance, praise, or inclusion? Looking for confirmation? If there is a more constructive way to meet your needs, try it. Social media can attract attention, but it won’t fill emotional gaps. If you want to share your experiences or connect with your family, publish. Also, be very careful not to publish personal or sensitive information. Do not give out personal information such as your address or phone number.
