The more social you are, the happier you are, right? Unless you’re letting social media websites, such as Facebook, cause you to compare yourself with friends in an unhealthy manner…
Social Media is far from perfect, but it has become an accepted form of socializing in today’s society.
Businesses love it because it’s another tool for staying connected to clients and customers. Individuals who are unable to connect with loved ones as often as they like find it beneficial for keeping in touch. Those whose health prevents them from going out for long periods of time may also find it convenient for socializing.
But, consistent scrolling on Facebook and other social media, can leave you feeling less than happy about yourself…especially when you spend too much time comparing your life with the lives and activities of others.
In a recent interview with TODAY.COM I recommend these 4 tips on how to be a happier Facebook friend and use social media in a healthy, happier way!
If you struggle with social issues of any kind, remember this: Things aren’t always as they seem – and this is especially true on social media. Also, just because a friend is thin, doesn’t mean you’re fat and just because someone is doing well in their career or business, doesn’t mean you are a failure!
