Social Surfing

Social Surfing

Often, social surfing (aka Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest) has more to do with NEEDING a break than being bored. When you can’t work anymore and your eyes start to glaze over, what’s your go to? We bet it’s a social media site. How could we blame you? It feels like a natural way to blow off steam.

Entertaining yourself by skimming social media can be unproductive and too distracting if it’s taking up more time than it should at your given job. Going down the rabbit hole is an easy way to fall behind, even though you were ahead before. This causes more stress than it relieves.

Try your best to limit social surfing throughout the day, if possible. Instead, try going out for a small walk in good weather or around the office during your lunch because a bit of exercise for a way to remove yourself from the overwhelming situation to return refreshed.
