How to get rid of social media addiction?
What is the first thing that comes to your mind when you think of addiction? Social media addiction has emerged with the impact of technology on our lives. For example, before social media came along, we all chatted and spent time with our friends when we met.
Set the time
It is important to limit the amount of time you spend on social media. Any addiction will gradually disappear with reduction. You should set how much time you spend on social media each day. E.g. if you spend 5 hours a day on social media, reduce it by 1 hour. Then by another 1 hour... Make a note of how much time you spend on social media every day.
Another method is to tie the use of social media to rules. For example, I can check social media after I have vacuumed the house. It is very important that you stick to the rules you set. Over time, you will find that you spend less time on social media.
One of the reasons we spend so much time on social media is because we can't find anything else. Therefore, it can reduce the amount of time you spend on social media to acquire new hobbies. The purpose of your social media surfing can be to distract your mind. You can also distract yourself with new hobbies. For example, you can learn a new language or play sports.
Making new friends can help you get rid of the social media addiction. You don't have to seek happiness in friendships or likes in the virtual world. The more time you spend on social media, the more you distance yourself from your friends. So you connect even more with social media. A vicious circle...
Deactivate your social media notifications
Turning off your social media notifications is also a method. You might then not look at social media until you receive a notification. You can also reduce the number of social media you use. The more social media accounts you have, the more time you spend on social media. While you look here and there, you spend hours on social media.
Recently, social media limiter apps have come on the market. With them you can limit the time you spend on social media.
