According to a recent study, the more time you spend logged into facebook and twitter, the less time you spend on physical activity. Health looks at some ways to stay healthy while being on social media.
- Set time limits for social media browsing and be consistent with scheduling allotted times set aside for social media. Don’t let it ruin your work, studies, or real-life relationships.
- If you find it tough to tune out of social media, try productivity apps that control your access to certain sites you particularly enjoy.
- Avoid relying on social media for serious health issues and always consult with your own doctor before taking any advice.
- Stay positive and professional. Treat your social media platforms and social media contacts with the same respect you would if face-to-face. This means not arguing with people online.
