How to Avoid Online Distress

We all know that our electronic devices can cause extra stress in our life, especially when we’re all online for school and work and communicating. Follow these tips on how to limit your online/social media usage and avoid letting it take over your life when it’s all that seems to be taking up your time:
  • Have ‘free’ time daily - pick a time every day where you put your phone or laptop on silent and away from you, and do something that takes your mind away from your electronics and social media, such as reading or meditation!
  • Set a timer on your phone - there are settings on smartphones that time how long you’re on a certain app, and it automatically closes out of it for you when you reach that time, that way you won’t spend four hours on tiktok!
  • Charge your phone in a different room - this one is hard but if your phone isn’t readily available to you, you’ll probably be less likely to go on it right away in the morning or at night, and you’ll also have to get out of bed to check it.
  • Spend an hour each night and each morning offline - Following along with that last tip, limiting your computer and phone use especially at night will help you relax and settle down and ultimately have a better night's sleep!
  • Take regular breaks - if you spend hours sitting at your desk on your laptop working or doing school, allow yourself time to get up every half hour or so (or more often!) and walk around, stretch, grab a snack, and rest your brain.
