I feel like the online world could always use a bit more positivity. That’s very like me to say such a statement.
I’ve conjured up a few little ways that you could make your online space a tiny bit more positive, only if you want to, (of course)…
THINK ABOUT WHAT YOU POST
I know the great thing about social media, and Twitter specifically, is that you can post instantly. Whatever you want to say, within a few seconds it can be out there forever.
For me personally, I try to refrain from posting negative statements online, as it never makes me feel very good. In fact, if I’m in a shitty mood and want to have a rant all over Twitter, it actually makes me feel a lot worse. Does anyone else get this?
GET IT OUT IN REAL LIFE
Having a step back, even having a rant to a loved one about the situation can be much better. Plus, who wants to go down their own timeline seeing their own constant moaning? Not me. There’s not much else that can bring you back to earth than when people reply to your moany tweet with #firstworldproblems.
FOLLOW PEOPLE YOU INSPIRE YOU
I hugely benefit from following positive people online, and I find that it makes me more positive in turn too. Yes we’re all granted a moan from time to time, but some people complain about anything, and make me want to immediately unfollow. Life is good, girl!
This is a bit contradictory, but sometimes the best thing to do in terms of staying positive is limiting your time online. Whenever I feel down, I tend to leave my phone alone, and do some things that make me happier.
I really like using my blog and social media platforms as a positive place, so if I’m not feeling that cheery, I’m surely not going to fake it. It’s always mentioned in research that people who spend more time offline are generally happier human beings, and I can see why that makes sense.
If I have to stay offline for a few more hours a day to be more positive when I’m actually on there, I’m gonna do it.
How do you stay positive online?
