The political posts online may prompt you to jump ship from social media. Everything seems so divisive.
Psychiatrist Denise McDermott reminds that our thoughts, actions and intentions carry their own vibrational frequency. Internet communication demands we self-regulate and be mindful in our actions.
Text messages and typed communications don’t always express the consideration and care that an actual conversation would hold. Try a video call or caring voicemail when in-person chatting is difficult.
Dr. McDermott recommends taking breaks from social media. Remember your positive experiences with people, despite their political expressions. A loving history with a good person is often overshadowed by the polarity of the current political climate. Being mindful and thoughtful in your interactions will help you open minds and have true conversations.
It’s okay to remove people from your social media if they are toxic and hateful.
Listen as Dr. McDermott joins Lisa Davis to discuss how to stay sane when interacting on social media.
