Emotional judgement

Infinite scrolling from social media has us trained to judge faster.

We move through updates quickly.

Why?

It’s literally the only way to “keep up”.

And we generally judge. You are probably an exception, but most of us make judgements continuously.

Judgement leads to exhaustion.

Stop judging, start recuperating.

Eventually freedom not only pays us a visit, but freedom ends up moving in with us.

But we have to curb social media.

Curb as in probably not partake.

If your goal isn’t impossible, you’re not reaching high enough.

Social media

TEDx Boca Raton had an audience participation station in the reception lobby – a giant iPhone and everyone was encouraged to take a selfie. This is a photo of it happening in real time.

Social media as the claim was made in one of yesterday’s TEDx Talks:

Social media is making us less social.

TEDx Speaker

i disagree.

Social media has made us less personal when we are face to face.

yours truly

When we are alone, social media has made us exponentially more social.

yours truly (again)

Ultimately, like nutrition, exercise, and rest, it comes down to our motivation to be wise about our choices.

Who’s feeling compelled to argue that social media is killing our relationships? Many.

Who’s feeling compelled to argue that being inactive is killing our bodies? Only a handful (like yours truly).

Unanswered Questions?

Facebook midlife crisis

Self doubt encouragement
Social Media, particularly Facebook, can have insidiously negative side effects.

 

Facebook midlife crisis.

What is the point of Facebook?

To:

  • Brag?
  • Complain?
  • Compare?
  • Sell?
  • Laugh?
  • Be somebody?
  • Prove something?

How many friends are too many, too few, or just right?

When you have hundreds, is it ok to secretly mute their notifications? If one of your friends mutes you on their account, your posts are never seen by your friend.

How much time spent trying to keep up is too much, not enough, or just right?

If you stopped posting updates, would anyone notice? Would anyone care?

Why do we hit the ‘Like’ button so often?

Why don’t we hit the ‘Like’ button more often?

Why? What? How? When?

How do i stop (habitually) reaching for my phone every spare moment to see if there are more updates – that little red circle with a number that insidiously makes me feel important (or lonely).
