Looking after your mental and physical health is very crucial, but these 14 months, we’ve all faced abnormal, unprecedented times And for folks that work in social media, there is often little escape.

When your work for social media, it may sense impossible to “unplug” and take a take from the online global. Whether you’re a social media manager, influencer, or solo business proprietor, here are some tips which can be helpful for your mental health.

Tip #1: Check your workload regularly. The famous To-Do list has never been more important. Put the activities on paper and try to classify them between urgent and non-urgent; I do it alone or I need someone to do it.

Tip #2: Monitor the screen time and set limits. About 50% of the world’s population uses social media – and the average Internet user spends about 6 hours and 43 minutes online every day. And, as a social media manager, that number can easily be doubled.

Tip #3: Remember to take regular breaks in your work area. Stopping for water, coffee or stretching your legs is recommended.

Tip #4: Turn off notifications. You probably synchronized your computer, your cell phone, your watch, invites you to meetings and every 30 minutes a subject skips on your screen. Start by silencing this. Interruptions severely impair creativity and reasoning. Click here to know more tips.

Tip #5: Control your social media feeds. Take courage and stop following accounts that don’t make you feel good. This is a great start. Silence hashtags that bother you or don’t make sense to you anymore.

Tip #6: Prioritize self-care. This can help a lot in your day-to-day. Take time to meditate and breathe; Spend more time doing activities that give you pleasure
