Social media is part of our everyday lives whether we use it or not. This makes using it positively that much more important, especially when its negative effects include anxiety, depression, and at the very least, distraction. Let’s make sure your morning Instagram scroll contributes to a healthy mindset. This can be anything from a positive quote on your story to making a TikTok with uplifting audio.

Make Connections

One clear benefit of social media is building connections with like-minded people. By connecting with old teammates, new friends, or new jobs, you can engage in meaningful conversations and learn things from different people to apply in different areas of your life. Curate your feed and social circle (online and off!) to create comfortable, rewarding spaces and engage with positive platforms where people feel free to be themselves.

Spread a Good message

One of the best parts about having the world right in front of you is that you can reach so many people with ease. Social media provides an opportunity to spread information to people around the world whether it is a charity or organization you support or just positive messages to make people’s days a bit easier. You never know how much someone might need to see the good vibes you post. Sometimes that is all it takes to change someone’s day or even their life. Positivity is always a necessary effort.

Get Involved

Social media is a great place to see different organizations or charities. This means that you might find one that you feel connected to and want to talk about. If that is the case, then advocate for it! Make posters for the cause, put links to information in your bio, and make posts to spread awareness about it. This can generate action in the real world and back up what you do in-person to make a difference.

In a world where there can be so much bad, it is not that hard to spread some good. Let’s use our voices for the better and help to uplift one another and ourselves!
