Social media stress should not dominate your holidays
Social Media Stress
The holidays climax this week. Last-minute shoppers take to the streets this morning (me included). They’re either starting the journey of presents or they’re looking for that last-minute finishing touch. Either way, real-life Christmas Eve wears us down.
Social Media Stress need not be part of your holidays. So, it’s OK to ignore people. You don’t have to get in arguments with people. Let politics take a back seat for a couple of days.
Send Season’s Greetings
Whether it’s Yule or Christmas, keep your social media interactions positive. You don’t celebrate Yuletide or Christmas? No problem. While it might be fun to poke the bears in your life, avoiding the “War on Christmas” is perfectly acceptable. Wishing folks the joy of the season makes for good business sense. So, waving to friends, hugging them (real or virtually) boosts your mood and theirs.
Pass on Problems
Social media stress drops dramatically when you don’t feed it. So, don’t go to that app on your phone for a while. Using timer apps helps control the desire to check things every few seconds. Therefore, your calm increases!
Check on those close to you
Depression clouds all too many during the holidays. So, check on your people! Care for them. Just make sure they’re OK. They need to know they’re not alone. Forget the foolishness.
