I've been feeling incredibly passionate about this topic since COIVD-19 started because truthfully, social media apps were the closest any of us were going to get for "human connection" for awhile. But with spending countless hours there, the results weren't always coming out positive. I was having more conversations about how unhappy people felt being on them.
I had a zoom presentation with some employees from The City of Northglenn in Colorado.

Some of the key topics I covered that I encourage you to reflect are:
• Ask yourself why you use these platforms and what your purpose is to show up on them. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
• You have all the power to add followers, remove followers, move on and turn off these apps!
• We are all human and social media only shares the best of the best, so let go of that non stop comparison to other people there. We are all unique, wonderful and amazing in our own way! Embrace that. (One of my biggest Eclectic values.)
• Remember to be in the moment and not capturing the moment. Sometimes putting our phone down is better.
• Reflect on your emotions while using these platforms. Are they positive or negative?
• Make sure you're adding value to your life and if social media ain't doing it... TAKE 👏 A 👏 BREAK.
• If these apps are causing conflict with your ACTUAL real life connections, talk about it and sort it out. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Humans by nature need connections, so make sure you're putting energy into the right ones and real ones. 😉
