social media has killed off my ability to focus

Well, it is common to feel distracted by the stream of information provided by social media.

Here are a few tips that may help you repair your ability to focus and reduce the negative effects of social media.

You can set specific time limits for using social media each day, and stick to them. There are apps that can help you track your usage. But I’m using the 5 minutes break time of my Pomodoro tracker when using social media.

You can also create a social media use schedule by planning it in advance and sticking to that schedule.

Make it a habit to take a break from your phone throughout the day.

If you cannot let it go, practice mindfulness to help you avoid getting caught in a spiral of negative thoughts.

Above all, seek alternative activities and be selective in the accounts you follow.

Remember, these changes may take time and effort to improve your ability to focus.
