Unfollow people

Let’s make our social media life as simple as possible. If certain people take away your zen online, unfollow them. Simple. Now, you won’t be able to see their updates and just get on with your social media browsing, stress-free. More importantly, you’re not being too harsh since you’re not unfriending them!

Follow people and pages with good feels

After unfollowing those with negative vibes, do the exact opposite. Follow  pages and people who bring positive energy. This makes your social media browsing meaningful everyday.

Keep scrolling

If a topic does not concern you or doesn’t make you better, keep scrolling. If you see something offensive or might trigger you to think of bad things, remember to just keep scrolling. Breathe in and breathe out.

Don’t compare
