How Supporti can help you
cut back on social media
IT'S OKAY TO TAKE A BREAK
Are you in need of a social media detox? If you find yourself turning to social media multiple times a day, spending hours scrolling only to feel drained and anxious afterwards, it may be time to take a break.
A detox may sound extreme. Should you delete all of your social accounts? What if you miss out on important news? Well, the good thing about technology today is that it's easy to sign out and sign back in, or delete and re-install apps in a manner of seconds. By adding even the smallest barrier to checking your news feed, you're more likely to pause and reconsider your actions, slowly breaking the habit of checking social media compulsively.
Incremental changes to your social media use can end up having a big difference in how much more free time and energy you can have. Here's how to start.
TAKE OUT SOCIAL MEDIA, ADD IN BETTER FEELINGS
By taking incremental, consistent steps to cutting out social media, you'll begin to reduce your dependency on social apps. The good news is, you don't have to eliminate digital social connection entirely. Here's how.
MAKE CONSISTENT PROGRESS WITH AN ACCOUNTABILITY PARTNER
Supporti uses the power of positive peer support to help you stay motivated to consistently make small lifestyle changes. It does so by supplying you with daily encouragement from an accountability partner through a mobile app. Unlike social media, Supporti pairs you up one-on-one—giving you the human connection you crave without the noise or ads of a social media platform.
How do you avoid social media?
Every success starts with a good plan. So, start by deciding how you want to start limiting social media (ideas below) and get specific. Then, tell your buddy your plan and then report back at the end of the day how your activity went.
Your buddy will hold you accountable by checking in on whether you stuck to your goal.
SMALL DAILY ACTIONS, BIG LASTING CHANGE
To detox from social media, Supporti has you focus on a daily action for the week to which your partner will hold you accountable. Individuals have the most success when they commit to one daily action at a time.
You'll customize your daily action based on where you are in your social media detox journey. Supporti suggests daily action ideas, but you're more likely to stay motivated in the long-term when you take ownership of the why and how of your daily action.
Supporti makes new behaviors accessible and actionable by having you focus on one for a week at a time: long enough to give it a fair try, but short enough to adjust if needed. See examples below.
Examples of customizable daily actions
Limit checking social media to once per day
Sign out of social apps each time you use them
Don't check your phone until after breakfast
Swap checking social media with texting or calling a family member.
Don't open any social media apps for the day
Throughout your weeklong session, you can check off whether or not you met your daily action, which is tracked in Supporti so you can see your daily actions adding up over time. It's rewarding to see how far you've come!
After each week, you can adjust your daily action as needed.
MUTUAL, ONE-ON-ONE SUPPORT FOR MAXIMUM ACCOUNTABILITY

By supporting your buddy, you feel great knowing that you played a part in helping them achieve their goal. Plus, when you see your partner succeed, it makes you want to do stick to your daily action, too.
When you know your buddy is counting on you, it makes you want to do it. And when you consistently cut out social media, it becomes less prominent in your life.
