When it comes to marketing your small business to consumers, promoting business to business to get clients or using social media marketing to advance engagement; learning how to balance your social media/technology experiences with your life can put things in perspective and maintain your health.

I’ve read a number of recent reports of people becoming “addicted” to their smartphones and how this behavior may be affecting their relationships and health.

Key Podcast Take Aways
  • Realize that what you see on social media is a moment in time for someone. Don’t compare your life to theirs.
  • Become for aware of how much time you spend on social media (tech in general). Track for say a month, how much you use your time each day. Then cut it in half.
  • Avoid distractions. Turn off your phone when you need to accomplish something (including talking to friends, family, etc.). These are quick distractions for your mind that can add up.
  • Not happy when you’re not “liked”? Forget about it! Beware if you’re tying in your confidence and approval from these messages. This can be a negative game for your psyche if that is what you’re using it for. 
  • Focus on your main life roles first. Be in the moment with your family and friends. Put your phone away in these moments as they flash by quickly. If you take a picture, take it then put the phone away.
  • When you’re by yourself, put the phone away for at least fifteen minutes to reflect.
