Marie Kondo your social media, it is time. A new month has begun, so let's kick it off by decluttering the space you spend a good portion of your time focused on.
All of us are guilty of being on social media too much. Whether it is for personal reasons, business ones or both, Twitter, Facebook, SnapChat, Instagram, Pinterest and probably a slew of others I am not aware of take up a significant amount of our time.
Therefore, it makes sense that our accounts need decluttering, just like other areas of our lives. Thanks to Marie Kondo's Netflix show Tidying Up with Marie Kondo people have been inspired only to keep things that spark them joy. Now the same method is being applied to social media and it is one of the best ideas ever.
Everyone has a person, or even a group that makes them feel angry or annoyed as soon as they appear on your news feed. It is a negative reaction, so why bother to keep that person or group around. You are not benefitting at all from seeing those posts; in fact, they are affecting your mood and not in a good way.
Now that doesn't mean you should only follow or be friends with people who agree with your opinions and life views. Keep those that challenge you. They help you grow as a person. It merely means that if you don't get some joy out of a person or groups posts, then you should ditch them.
I know what you are thinking. You can't unfollow or unfriend a particular person because they are family or a life=long friend. Yes, you can, and it will feel amazing. In all honesty, the person will likely never know you unfriend or unfollow them. However, you will instantly feel a sense of relief and gratification.
You don't have to declutter all at once. If you need some time to process it all, that is ok too. Take it slowly but do it. There is no time like the present to start.
