In this episode, Jamie, Avery, and Lucy talk about the pros, cons, and boundaries around social media and technology. We briefly discuss our own love/hate relationships with social media and tech. We then explore the pros and cons of this dimension of our lives and how it affects our mental health. We offer suggestions and clues regarding when stricter boundaries around social media and tech might be needed. Lastly, we offer tips and tricks to help us keep our social media and technology usage in check.
Do Try This At Home:
Set time limits for your social media usage (use an actual timer to alert you!).
Ask yourself, “What do I need a limit around? What do I want to foster more of?”
Turn off notifications and put your phone on “do not disturb” regularly.
Have regular conversations with your kids about appropriate technology use – where are they using technology and where is technology “using them?”
