These days it's a common thing to find yourself constantly checking your phone or computer for updates on social media platforms. It's common nowadays to feel like you need to stay connected to the internet and know what's happening online. In fact, many of us have become obsessed with social media and can't go a day without checking our notifications or messages.
But have you ever considered the time and attention you're spending on social media? These are valuable resources that we often overlook. Social media players know this and try to capitalize on our attention by providing more and more content to keep us hooked.

Time and attention are precious assets just like gold. As miners explore mines for these valuable assets the same way social media players also explore our attention and time when we go online. it may just be a waste your resources when it's about staying online for long and not can making the most out of it by engaging with meaningful and valuable content that will enrich your life.

Social media has become an integral part of our daily lives, and many of us find ourselves spending a considerable amount of time on various social media platforms. While this may seem like an obsession, it's essential to note that not all obsessions are negative. In fact, some of them may even bring about positive outcomes.


For instance, if you have a daily blogging activity on platforms like Hive, you may be compelled to spend more time online, engaging with your followers and creating valuable content. This is all becuaee Hive helps make productive use of your time. However, it's crucial to strike a balance between your online and offline worlds to avoid neglecting important matters in your real life.

In my view, failure to manage situations effectively can have negative consequences. Therefore, it is important to avoid letting online activities take over and disrupt other aspects of life. To strike a healthy balance between the virtual and physical world, I have found the following tips to be helpful:

First thing first, which means setting my priorities
The first thing which has really helped me a Hive balance is setting priorities. it's essential to plan each day know what needed to be done in any area of your life. It's also important to go by your plan for the day. Even if you have a perfectly planned day, deviating from your plan could result in unfulfilled goals. To avoid this, prioritize your tasks and tackle the most important ones first. In all, It takes discipline to adhere to your plan for the day, but it's worth it in the long run.

Know there is time for Everything
One key principle that can help you achieve balance in your virtual and real world is to recognize that there is a time and place for everything. By prioritizing your activities and allocating time for both online and offline pursuits, you can ensure that you are not neglecting any important aspects of your lives.


Achieving balance is about how well you utilised time in both worlds
A few years ago, a friend shared a story about his experience with excessive screen time. He became physically and mentally exhausted, and even developed other health issues as a result of spending too much time behind the screen. It was a wakeup call for him realizing that it's crucial to take care of his body, even as he engages with digital technologies.

It's not about completely limiting your online time but rather about being mindful of your health and well-being. Engaging in real-life activities that build you up also help, exercising the body and spending time with friends are just as important as anything we do online. It's necessary to strike a balance between our virtual and real-world lives, so that we can enjoy the benefits of both.

I hope these tips are helpful. Feel free to share any useful tips with me so we can interact and learn from each other.

Thanks for your interest in reading my post bro

Thank you brother for these important tips.

The internet innovation has divided our daily activities into virtual and physical interactions. As far as our time and attention are concerned, it is truly significant that we channel our resources into where it can yield positive outcomes rather than just pressing phones anyhow.

I am still struggling to stay away from facebook because that app takes away a good portion of my time. I guess i have to strike a balance and not stay away completely because i also post my business there.

While it's crucial to focus on business, it's equally important to maintain a balance between your online and offline life. Thanks for stopping by @amiableamara
