Do not replace social interactions with technology.

Having a sufficient amount of social interaction limits the amount of screen time that you use. Interacting with people will also benefit your overall health in many ways. You should not isolate yourself from people. You can learn many things from them and use them to add value to your life.


  1. Remind yourself to be socially active as an insufficient amount of social interaction can cause you harm. This lack of social activity can lead to:
    1. Feelings of loneliness
    2. Poor physical health
    3. Poor mental health
    4. Lower levels of life satisfaction
  2. Do not use social media as a replacement for real-life interactions.
    The more time you spend using social media, the more isolated and lonely you will feel as there is no true social interaction occurring.
  3. Remember that social media use has an overall negative effect on people.
    According to studies, only very specific behaviors of social media users have a positive effect, while the overall use has a negative effect.
