Facebook has changed the landscape of modern relationships. You are no longer required to make an effort to keep up with friends and family across the globe. But with this convenience comes the dark side of social media.
Social media habits tend to also kill the intimacy of our relationships and they also have an impact on our creativity.
Every minute you spend on Facebook scrolling through the endless feed is a creative minute wasted. So if you are caught up in this rampant downward spiral what is the resulting impact on your creative skills?
Creativity Requires Time And Focus
Whether your gift is writing, speaking, entertaining, or creating art, you need to invest time in nurturing your creative muse.
Pay attention to the process.
You will notice the strange pull to check your phone for messenger notifications. You will start to feel panicky if you do not respond to Facebook’s untimely reminders to you that the (online) world is waiting for your attention.
The algorithms designed by companies such as Facebook are tailor-made to keep you hooked. They want your time, your attention, your focus. And they will do everything possible to keep you addicted.
Is there a safe middle ground?
Yes, there is. Facebook and social media are essential for businesses and to keep in touch with your acquaintances. An easy solution is to practice strong boundaries and limit your time on social media – reducing your usage and checking your accounts a few times a week instead of daily.
