Social media anxiety is a condition that affects one in three people.
It can lead to a sense of isolation, lack of energy and a decrease in your ability to work effectively.
Here are some tips to ease your social media discomfort.

Most of us are aware of the social media chatter, and some of us also see it as an outlet for our own emotions.

If that is the case, it might be tempting to focus only on the negative aspects of the job, like negative feedback.
But you need to also think about how to make the job better.
That might mean using more positive language and focusing on what’s happening in the office or the classroom.
