We have seen rapid growth in technology and social media has the potential for us to interact with people across the globe and be switched on in a 24/7 digital world. Although there are huge benefits of using social media, if not managed appropriately it can lead to adverse effects on your mood and mental health wellbeing.
A number of studies have found that the overuse and somewhat addictive nature of constantly checking notifications, responding to messages and the Fear Of Missing Out, has kept people glued to platforms and taken them down a rabbit hole that distracts you from family, business and work priorities.
This has resulted in poor sleep patterns, feeling tired/drained, poor time management due to interruptions and distractions, stress, and anxiety. In more serious cases it has led to feeling depressed based on the veneer of success reflected on their feeds.
In this practical and engaging short talk Professional Business & Confidence Coach, Lateef Badat of ALB Business & Confidence Coaching will help you assess your relationship with social media and offer you practical strategies to ensure you manage your time on social media in a way that is productive to your mood and mental health & well-being.
