Health Tip: Healthier Ways to Use Social Media

(HealthDay News) — Teens spend as many as nine hours each day on social media, says Abington Hospital in Pennsylvania.

While social media is a great way to stay connected to friends and get information, it can also take a toll on mental health, the hospital says.

To be a healthier social media user, it suggests:

  1. Be aware of how social media is affecting your physical and emotional wellbeing.

  2. Try using social media less frequently, perhaps once a week. Having a “Facebook Friday” or “Twitter Tuesday” may help.

  3. If you go on daily, limit the day’s usage to 15 minutes.

  4. Only check into social media when you receive a notification.
