Keeping Sane and Tuning Out (a Bit)
A friend wrote that she feels more and more depressed each day, following news and politics on social media.
My advice? Stop it.
Getting away from social media can be the best thing for someone with an impulse to follow and comment on... everything. And I do mean everything. It's like a compulsion for this friend and for many others.
Let things go.
Having been stuck at home and in bed for a month, I can attest that social media is depressing. Take a break from it if you need to. There's nothing wrong with realizing that online life isn't real life and that it can be overwhelming.
I fear some friends just cannot turn away from social media, even for a day or two. Try it. Maybe you'll discover it helps.
