How to embark on a social media detox

If you have agreed that you have an issue with social media, then, I am glad because that is the first step towards overcoming the problem.

Only those who admit there is a problem can find a solution. 

So, how do you go about a social media detox?

Unlike hard substances and drugs that may need gradual weaning, with social media addiction, you can just do it like you are ripping a band-aid off. 

1. Deactivate your accounts

You are not deleting the account. It is simply like hitting a pause button. With Facebook, go to ‘Settings’ then ‘Security’ and there you will find ‘Deactivate Account’. As for Instagram, go to ‘Edit Profile’ and then ‘Temporarily disable my account’. 

Once you are ready to reactivate, all you have to do is to log in again.

2. Delete the apps

If you still have the apps (even if freeze them), you may be tempted to go back to reactivate before the set time. On the other hand, you may ask why you can’t just delete rather than deactivate first. Well, that is to deter you from accessing your accounts on other devices.

3. Replace the habit

When you let go of any addiction, something else has to take its place or else you will fall into the habit again. Therefore, during the period you have set aside for the detox, find a new hobby that will consume you. It could be journaling, painting, etc. 

Some experts say that a proper detox should last 3 months so that your dopamine levels can go back to normal. However, it that is too much for you because you use social media to complement your business, you can do it for a week at regular intervals (make sure you always inform your customers before you go off the grid and give them an alternative way of reaching you).

When you get back from the detox, remember to use social media with care.
