Day 17: Set Timers on Social Media

Task: Set a time limit on your social-media apps.

__Why: __ Social media apps are designed to keep your attention as long as possible. Unfortunately, “bad” or threatening news holds our attention longer. You can find your social media usage in iPhones by going to Settings > Battery. Whatever your usage is, reduce that by 10 percent.

Now, when we use social media, we can do so deliberately. Find a minimum of three posts where you can be happy for the poster. As you hit that “like” button, bask in the positive vibes you’re sending. Once you’ve found your three people to celebrate, close the app for now and go back to your productive day.
