Do you feel insecure because your Instagram photos aren’t as polished as hers? Are you feeling mentally overwhelmed by your Twitter feed? Do you catch yourself mindlessly opening your Facebook app within minutes of closing it?
Participate in KD’s Digital Detox on May 16! For one day, Kappa Deltas everywhere are going to stay off social media. Get all your double-taps in on the night of the 15th because we’re detoxing the next day. It’s a nice mental break to take the day off, and it’s not so bad when all your sisters are in it with you!
Most of us have an active presence on social media and can be reached at all hours of the day via text or email. Our phones are never far from us. (And even when it is, our Apple Watch will kindly deliver text messages straight to our arm.) There is no escaping the outside world, the expectations to constantly be busy or the “perfect life” comparisons that come with it.
In 2018, there is no distinction between our mental wellness and our digital wellness. What we see and share on social media and how frequently we communicate are major factors in our confidence levels and our ability to truly relax.
Consider the tips below to prioritize your digital, and mental, wellness this month.
And don’t forget to join the KD Digital Detox on May 16! Let your followers know you’ll be taking a break on May 16 by sharing this graphic the day before, on May 15 (click on the image below to save). Click hereopens VIDEO file for an animated graphic you can share on your Instagram story.
