Scroll With Purpose: Follow These Mindful Social Media Accounts
One core principle of mindfulness is the practice of nonjudgment – perceiving the world with neutrality, openness and curiosity. With this view, nothing is inherently “good” or “bad,” including social media.
Social media is a big part of most people’s personal and professional lives – 79% of Americans have social media accounts. Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn and other platforms offer ways to stay in touch with friends and family, to make new professional connections, and even to promote your products or services to people who could benefit from them.
As we navigate the world of social media, it’s important to remember that the media we consume affects our state of mind. We’ve all had times on social media where we see a post that upsets us or puts us in a bad mood.
After you notice a post negative like that, pause and think – is following this account helping or hurting my wellbeing? The content we take in as we scroll through Facebook, Twitter and Instagram can affect us positively or negatively.
The good news? We have a choice in what we consume. We can recruit our technology to uplift us rather than drain us.
One way to bring more intention to your social media usage is to follow positive people and businesses so that you sign off feeling inspired. Follow these social media accounts for mindful, uplifting, and inspirational content:
