Handling Social Media Burnout // Truck Talk Thursday

wolf and iron mike yarbrough truck talk thursday social media burnout

Over the last several months I've seen friends say " Adios" to Facebook or Instagram only to see them reappear a few weeks later. I've been there, you've probably been there as well. We recognize just how much time we waste scrolling through the lives of people we barely know while our kids grow up and our own dreams are left unfulfilled.

The worst part is, it's not actually a bad thing. Social media is supposed to be good, right? To help us stay connected, but we fall into the trap of arguments, comparison, or just distraction and then get fed up and quit...and then come right back.

It's Your Issue

Here's the deal: Technology isn't going anywhere. Life is likely going to get easier. Bots will be doing more things and we will have the opportunity to think less and be distracted more. The really issue is your ability to:

  1. Keep social media within certain parameters of usage
  2. Use social media to better yourself, not distract yourself

I wonder if when couches were invented someone thought, "There goes humanity. Those things are so comfortable no one will ever want to get off of them." Probably not. And we shouldn't blame technology for our inability to focus on what really matters.

At the end of the day, if you're feeling burned out on social, it's your issue.
