Social media can be a bit of a double-edged sword.
For those whose work involves social media (and that’s most of us!), you know the drill. Sometimes you just wanna unplug and put the phone away for a day, but you don’t always have this luxury. On the flip side, you might get distracted by your personal social accounts and get stuck in the endless scroll.
There are some things you can do so that social media time does not take up ALL your time. Setting boundaries with yourself can be difficult, so accountability plays a big role here.
Schedule your posts ahead of time
By using an app like “Later”, you have the ability to schedule posts ahead of time. You’ll still need to get online to respond to comments and post stories, but this certainly makes a dent. Can you imagine if all your posts were pre-planned, written, and scheduled to go out right when you need them to? Amazing, right?
Set barriers to entry
If you struggle with the line between work and personal life getting blurred, you just have to get a little clever. By making the app just a little more difficult to access, you can help avoid the scroll and still get your work done.
Schedule your social time
Start putting your social media time on your calendar. Treat it as an appointment, just like anything else in life. If you’re already into calendar blocking, this should be a breeze for you. Try to avoid picking up your phone whenever you have a free moment, and instead set aside dedicated blocks of time to respond to comments, post stories, and engage with your audience.
