With the overload of information laid out in front of you, things can get overwhelming unless you make a conscious effort to relax and go easy on consumption, of information. Like the star of ‘The Good Place’ Kristen Bell suggests, you better watch the accounts which show up in your feed on Facebook and Instagram among others. Here are a few tips that can help you leverage social media to manage diabetes better:

1. Be Kind and Respectful

When someone starts posting about their personal physical transformation story, considering how it is beneficial for controlling and managing diabetes, you should be kind and respectful if not supportive of the other person’s efforts. Everyone is going through the same challenges that you are. Be mindful of that. However, when you see someone mention things like saving on medication costs with online tablet splitters in usayou need to take it with a pinch of salt. It is okay not to engage with these posts.

2. Choose curated information 

Before starting to follow any account to, say, saving medication costs using tablet cutters online, you should first check if the admin of said account has already tried using it and then started advising you to follow his footsteps or if he is simply selling something which he doesn’t believe in himself.

3. Positive affirmations are powerful 

There is something about positive affirmations. For example, if you wake up next to a person who is encouraging and supportive, every day is going to work out great for you. Likewise accounts with positive affirmations are a great thing to look at first thing in the morning. For example, if an account says ‘Believe that you can save more with this pill splitter everyday!’
