When you are always on social media, it’s easy to get exhausted from following the constant stream of news and updates. But for social media managers, figuring out how to avoid burnout from always updating or looking at the latest posts can be hard to do. Here are some tips for making the most of your time online without feeling like you need to unplug.

Take Time Away

One of the easiest ways to avoid suffering burnout is to simply take some time to not engage with social media at all. This means looking away from your business profiles and not logging into your personal profiles, either. Give yourself half an hour every day where you are not interacting with social media of any kind. Try taking a walk, even if it’s just around the block. Once the end of the workday has come, don’t answer any more messages or comments. They can wait until the following day.

Rest Your Eyes

Giving your eyes some rest time is essential. Look away from screens of all kinds, even the TV screen. Eye strain can lead to many other health problems, and no one wants that. The more tired your eyes get, the less focused you become. Your brain will want to disengage, and anything productive that you will want to do will become more difficult.

Move Around

It’s also a good idea to get up and stretch. Whether you are working from home or you are in the office, make sure you get up and walk around. Even though you might not always be on social media monitoring conversations and adding new posts, you’re probably doing plenty of other work on your computer.  Don’t be afraid to get away from your desk. You will be able to get past the feelings of tiredness that are probably more of a problem after lunch, and you will be able to come up with better answers for curious customers or clients who are asking questions you’re not sure you have the answers to.
