Should You Take a Break from Facebook?
Times are different now than a decade ago. It used to be possible to finish working for the day and go home to “unplug.” But now that we have smartphones and social media, such as Facebook, it’s possible to stay connected all day. And if you aren’t sure how to best set boundaries around that, it can be draining, especially on the soul. Plus, there’s a strange irony about Facebook. Hundreds of “friends” are at our fingertips, and we can look into part of their lives — and let others know what’s up with us — at any moment. And studies have shown that Facebook can actually make people lonelier. So, is it possible to use Facebook in a healthy way? It is! Here are some tips to keep in mind.
