4 Easy Ways to Spring Clean Your Social Media This Season
Spring has sprung and this year, as we spend more time at home than ever before, many of us have shifted into high gear and are spring cleaning. The benefits to spring cleaning and decluttering provides a sense of satisfaction that will automatically put you in a better mood- so why not bring that same sense of satisfaction to your social media profiles?
At Gravvity, we are all about curating a healthier lifestyle and social media experience. We are firm believers that social media should be a place where you can have the realest conversations and connections. Here are 4 easy ways to spring clean your social media profiles and kickstart a healthier, happier season:
1. UNFOLLOW ACCOUNTS YOU DON'T ENGAGE WITH.
As Marie Kondo would say, “To truly cherish the things that are important to you, you must first discard those that have outlived their purpose.” Like that old stained sweater you never wear but just can’t seem to get rid of, it may be time to move on and make space for new things. Unfollowing accounts you don’t engage with leaves space on your timeline and feed for content that you actually want to see.
2. DELETE. DELETE. DELETE.
Similar to the first point, sometimes it’s just time to let go. Take a minute to reevaluate and delete the content on your grid and profile that no longer brings you happiness or represents who you are. There’s nothing wrong with change- after all that’s what spring is all about.
3. FOLLOW PAGES THAT INSPIRE YOU AND SPARK CREATIVITY.
This is an important one. Social media has the power to inspire and spark the most creative content and ideas. We encourage you to take the time to find and follow pages that inspire you or simply bring joy to your life. Whether it’s an account with inspirational quotes, a fashion blog, or a meme account (like Gravvity!), you want your feed to be a place that brings you happiness.
4. SET A SCHEDULE.
Just as you do with most things in your life, it’s important to set up a structure for your social media usage as well. You probably have set times to workout or get exercise, you have a certain schedule for household chores and laundry, and I’m sure you don’t drink coffee past a certain time to help you with sleep. Social media should be treated the same way - try to set times that you can use to take a break from your daily tasks to enjoy your social media feeds, but don’t get so caught up that you get lost in the scroll. We hope you find these tips helpful and make your social media experience the most positive and healthy place possible.
