Do you spend too much time on Facebook ?
I don’t know anyone today who doesn’t use Facebook. I mean, Facebook is awesome ! So why do you feel like it’s taking way too much life off of your life ? Because it probably does …
Do you scroll 5 times over the same Facebook posts ?
Do you check your private messages every 5 seconds ?
Are you obsessed over how many likes you’re gonna get on that (awesome) selfie you just took ?
Let’s be real, we all go through that phase (at least I did lol). And I believe the excitement that comes from what Facebook offers us is the reason for it.
However, you should not forget that there is an actual life out there and that scrolling 5 times over the same stuffs won’t make your business grow.
Facebook is an amazing tool for socializing, connecting with people all over the world. And when we’re all « busy », Facebook really is one of the best ways to have news from the people we care about !
Facebook also is an amazing working tool ! I use it to develop my business, promote sales, share my videos…It allows a lot of people to see, it gives me visibility. And it does the same for you ! But this can sometimes become overwhelming …
So between wasting time on it, and using it for business or socializing, I bet you don’t really know how much time you should spend on it…And I don’t either. Actually it’s ok to spend 4 hours on Facebook WHEN SOMETHING IS HAPPENING ! It has happened to me before, and it was awesome and I didn’t waste my time because I was actually going over business details, customer information and so on.
So the best advice I can give you is to EVALUATE.
Before you go on Facebook, evaluate how much time you need to do what you’re going to do. If you’re going to check on other people’s posts for fun , give yourself 10 minutes and set up an alarm. If you’re going to work on it , sometimes, you won’t know how much time it’s gonna take …Therefore, I suggest you take a break every 45 min and evaluate if you’ve been productive in the last 45min or not. If not, do something else.
The last thing I ‘d suggest is to stay away from it until you’ve accomplished everything you need to that isn’t related to Facebook. Therefore, you’ll feel good, and not guilty to check Facebook !
I hope this article helps you !
