So, it’s almost midnight and you’re exhausted, yet you find yourself casually scrolling through your Instagram feed, eyes glued, unable to stop.  Why?  Why do we get so obsessed with something that means nothing?  Why do we feel the need to put our best selves out there while we sit, in isolation, waiting for likes and comments.  It’s pathetic, really.  But we’re all addicted.  So, what can you do when you’ve had too much? Here’s how to deal when social media becomes too much.

1. Put your phone down

The first step is getting that phone out of your hands.  Turn it off or go put it in another room.  Leave it alone.  Don’t look at it for as long as you can handle.

2. Stop comparing

Comparison is the thief of joy, right?  Well, then why do you compare yourself to every other girl out there on IG?  People have both good and bad things come into their lives at different times.  So what if you don’t make as much money as someone else or have a house yet.  So what if your friends are all married and you’re not.  So what.  Stop comparing!
