Spring Cleaning Your Social Media
Social media consumes a large portion of a person’s day.

Even if you’re not cruising social media as part of your job, chances are you’re regularly checking in to see what friends, family, colleagues and enemies are doing.

The problem is when social media has you feeling anxious, insecure or upset. It may be time to take stock of what you’re doing and feeling on social media. A little spring cleaning may be best for your mental well-being.

Is it time for you to do some spring cleaning with your social media?
