According to studies, an average internet user spends more than 2 hours on social media per day. And the time spent is on rise.
We have to accept the fact that social media has helped us a lot. It has completely revolutionized the world. And now it’s hard for us to live a day of our lives without our mobile phones.
But the problem arises when social media starts controlling your lives. Overuse of these social platforms has an adverse effect on people’s lives. It’s changing the way you think and perceive things.
You were not given this life to scroll your newsfeed for hours. People are mad at showing off their lives. Social media has become an easy way for people to show off. People try to fake perfection, but in reality, they might have an imperfect life.
Believe me, your life is better than this nonsense showoff.
Don’t let social media become an addiction. It can lead to poor self image when you start comparing your life with that of others.
A lot of valuable time is wasted because of these platforms, which otherwise would have been utilized in a much better way.
Sometimes, the addiction gets so much that starts affecting sleep cycle which in turn is harmful to our overall health.
Too much of social media also starts affecting your relations with your family. Try not to use your phones while you are with your family.
Social media has also become an easy target for fake news. Every now and then, some fake news comes up. We need to be careful of such things.
Don’t let your smartphone rule you. Limit the time you spend on your phone. There are many apps out there which can help you out. Get busy in some more productive work in your free time rather than using social media.
