woman-working-on-laptop-guesthouseWhen we talk about well-being, we are referring to both physical and emotional health. Our current society is exceptionally digital. Many of us spend a large amount of our time, whether it be for work or recreation, on some form of digital platform. Because of that, we must start to consider and think about our digital well-being. When we refer to digital well-being, we generally think of it as the extent to which our digital lives help or hurt us. If you or someone you know is struggling with addiction or mental health, it may help to take some time to think about your digital well-being. Here are a few things to consider if you feel your digital well-being is not as great as it could be.

Be Mindful

When we are mindful, we are in the moment, taking notice of our emotions and feelings as we experience them. Being mindful can help us to better understand what we are feeling and what may trigger those feelings. Try being mindful as you partake of the digital world, and notice what you feel as you do it.

Focus on Others

Social media, in particular, tends to make us overly focused on ourselves. How many likes did my recent photo get? How many comments did my post get? Should I go “live” to show off my new makeup routine? Try to take some time, maybe a few days, where you only focus on other people. Support them in whatever they are posting about and worry less about how much attention your own posts are receiving.

Cultivate Self-Esteem

Let’s face it; some people are just plain mean on the internet. It can hurt to get negative comments or no likes on a photograph. When online, focus on the posts and sites that bring you up. If a particular site is hurting your self-esteem, take a break from it.

Living in a digital world has many benefits. We can connect with people worldwide, take jobs states away, or participate in college or classes as we sit comfortably at home. However, not all of the digital world is nice. Taking the time to notice your digital well-being is crucial. Be mindful of how you feel as you do certain activities or visit specific sites online. Try only to do things that bring up your self-esteem and that you genuinely enjoy. Here at The Guest House, we understand that it can sometimes be hard to understand our emotions and feelings. It is not always clear why certain things affect us in specific ways. If your digit well-being is causing you to suffer, we are here to help.
