Finding Balance With Social Media

Finding Balance With Social Media

Finding balance with social media is something that I think looks different for everyone. For me it means that, when spending time online, I post about what I love and consume what I enjoy, but I also make sure to take time to switch off and spend time away from my phone. Over the past few months, I have been figuring out the balance that works the best for me, and here are a few things I have found helpful;

Making room for offline hobbies

One of my favourite things to do is to watch YouTube videos and catch-up on my favourite content creators. Whilst this is something I really enjoy, I also realised a few months ago that I didn’t spend as much time doing hobbies that I love offline. For me, that could be baking, journaling, going for a walk with the dogs and more. So, something that I have found great is to balance the time that I enjoy spending online with some of my favourite offline activities. 

The time you spend online

There are a few things that I have found really great for making my experience more positive when spending time online that have also been beneficial for balance. For me, on social media I feel that 3 things are in my control; what I post, who I follow and how long I spend online. Finding a balance that works for me across these 3 areas has been really wonderful in making my experience online more positive. I have written a blog post all about this if you would like to read more (link here). 

Time away from social media is okay

I have a blog and a YouTube channel that I love creating content for and get so much enjoyment out of. However, some days I don’t necessarily feel in the mood to film a video, write a blog post or upload on Instagram. This might not be for any particular reason, other than just fancying a bit of time offline. Whilst I used to feel a need to post, now I know that spending time offline (however long that might be for) is absolutely okay. Not only is spending time offline super beneficial for ensuring balance with social media and a great opportunity for self-care, but it is also means that when I do return to creating content, it is often more authentic - which is an added bonus. I now find myself spending a day or a weekend offline every now and then, and it is something I really love to do and find very beneficial. 

I hope you have found this blog post helpful. I would love to know in the comments, what are your top tips for finding balance with social media?
