Enjoy the real world

Show the virtual world that you are not dependent on it. The internet is there for you and not you for the internet. Just take time for yourself. Without digital devices and without the pressure to be online.

Enjoy the real world: with real friends. With real experiences. With real happiness. And real success. Ask the following questions:

I emphasize that when you're on the road, this is one of the areas you need to optimize if you are seriously interested in a better result.

Action Steps - from the know-how to the Do-now

Recall the following:

  1. Social media affects less than one percent of the purchase decisions on the Internet. How many new customers have you already won?
  2. Are you a social media junkie or just let Facebook and Co. distract?
  3. Limit the time you spend on social networks every day.
  4. Provide the care of your company accounts in the hands of professionals.

What can help: A social media diet

Whenever you realize that you have too much of something (with the exception of time, power, and money, perhaps), you think about what you can do about it.

Have you ever seriously started a diet? The basis is always the same: it is about less. Whether you eat too much, work too much or use too many media at once, restriction or abstinence are the key words.

Restricting social media consumption - but how?

When the time for real life in the digital world is lost, I have to make sure that I restrict the use of social media.

This is the only way I can recapture the time factor for me personally. And as with any diet, the success depends on making a plan.

What does the diet plan look like?

With a diet plan you can control your eating habits, with a usage plan you can get your digital media behavior under control.

If you actually recognize tendencies of a social media addiction, a social media diet could be the solution. How could a media diet look like? Here 10 steps to success:

How the Internet determines our lives

The Internet, digitization and mobile devices increasingly determine our lives in all areas. For some people, however, this has become a veritable addiction, they can not stop sometimes to deal with digital topics and social media.

When the limit to addiction is reached, everyone has to decide for themselves. For example, sharing with others can help to determine if behavioral change is really necessary. So here's 10 tips on Digital Detox.

10 Tips for Digital Detox

  1. Talk with friends and acquaintances about your own addiction to find out if a social media diet is necessary. Others - especially your partner - often have a clearer view.
  2. Anyone who has recognized its dependence on social media should first try to curb consumption drastically. Log into social networks only once a day for the duration of, for example, 30 minutes.
  3. In the morning, work strictly offline on important projects up to a predefined time.
  4. Limit the Internet access via Smartphone, Blackberry or iPhone to a maximum of 30 minutes per day.
  5. The demand for current news from the social network decreases, if in the own attitudes releases per eMail be displayed via status messages and news.
  6. Delete Facebook-Applications on the mobile phone - this supports stamina.
  7. For particularly stubborn cases: Use software that takes control of you for a certain period of time. You set a time, and the software blocks pre-defined pages, mail programs, or the entire Internet during that time. These programs are especially helpful when you need concentrated work.
  8. Take at least once a week, ideally on the weekend, no computer technology in the hand. Spend the hours only with family or friends.
  9. The medium-term goal of such a diet could be to leave one working day per month entirely on the Internet. A so-called offline-day. Try it.
  10. From now on you can spend a day completely offline once a month. No emails, no Xing, no Facebook, no Twitter, no Qype, no Skype - nothing! Not even on the cell phone. Only concentrated work. That is productive!

Conclusion: renouncement is worthwhile

These tips 10 show: Even if it is sometimes radical and also quite hard: Abandon, at least for a while at least digitally switch off, can really be worthwhile. This gives you completely new impressions.

However, as with other things, it is important to be really consistent in order to really achieve success!
