SELF-CARE FOR SO­CIAL ME­DIA

Women's Health (UK) - - STRONG MIND -

Be kind to your mind with tips from Nadia Narain and Ka­tia Narain Phillips, au­thors of Self-care For The Real World (£16.99, Pen­guin)

AVOID SUN­RISE STALK­ING

‘You’re at your most cre­ative in the morn­ing when you wake up. Don’t waste this time look­ing at the high­lights reel of some­one else’s life – do some­thing for you.’

FEEL­ING DOWN? STEP AWAY

‘If you’re in a low place, limit your use of so­cial me­dia. Just like drink­ing, it’s not wise to do it when you’re sad.’

CURATE A POS­I­TIVE FEED

‘Don’t look at posts or peo­ple that you know trig­ger your in­se­cu­ri­ties. Can you cut your fol­lows down to close friends and in­spir­ing peo­ple?’

DON’T SCROLL AT NIGHT

‘Avoid look­ing at so­cial me­dia af­ter 8pm. Evenings are a vul­ner­a­ble time when your emo­tions can be­come mag­ni­fied. Give your­self a break.’

SHARE RE­SPON­SI­BLY

‘Post to in­spire and in­ter­est peo­ple, not to im­press any­one, prove your­self or make a point.’
