The Case for Slow Social Media

Like, comment, and share. Social media teaches us to react immediately. Speed can be gratifying.

But the rush of immediacy causes unnecessary anxiety and short-sighted opinions.

What if we just observe, step away, and suspend our thoughts instead — that is, listen before we speak.

The world overestimates real and raw sharing. Snapchat understands this. It started the ephemeral craze but now lets users piece together edited versions of their lives with Memories.

Here’s one solution to the quick response: Go for a walk and focus on your breath. Quiet your monkey mind.

Here’s how to get off the social media treadmill altogether: Slow down, think it over, synthesize, and then come back and participate.

Write your way to the life you want.
