Stop Wasting and Start Investing Your Time

Impostor-1Burnout from work-related stress can be managed by taking microbreaks - short stints of free time that can help break up routine and lead to mental clarity and renewed productivity. But, not all microbreaks are created equally.

By now, you are probably familiar with the term “doom scrolling,” a phenomenon in which one consumes an excessive amount of negativity, consciously or unconsciously, from online sources. These days, when we find ourselves with a few minutes of down-time, we often turn to our phones and social media expecting relief, when in reality these breaks may be doing more harm than good. 

What would happen if, instead of doom scrolling, you invested the same time and energy into your personal and professional development? The next time you go to pick up your phone, consider these three reasons why microlearning is the best microbreak.

Microlearning is All About You

It’s easy to forget that social media platforms are not designed around authenticity, but rather to highlight life’s best moments. Even knowing this, it’s hard to not compare our own lives to what appears on our social feeds and almost always to the detriment of our own self-worth. 

Try this: Microlearning meets you where you are at in your personal and professional growth journey. Whether you are looking for a new job or trying to pick up a new healthy habit, microlearning lessons promote quick, specific and actionable outcomes that can be incorporated in day-to-day life.  

Microlearning is Uplifting

Feelings of inadequacy, dysphoria or an overall negative outlook can be symptoms of doom scrolling. If a lack of likes is starting to affect your self-esteem, it may be time to limit your social media screen time and explore apps that promote health and well-being. 

Try this: Whether from your desktop or from our TONE app you can join a community of experts and individuals who are committed to empowering you to be your best self. As you let go of negativity, you will find your greatness.

Microlearning is an Investment of Your Time

If doom scrolling is not bringing you joy, then it is a waste of time. In fact, many apps allow you to check just how much time you may have wasted throughout the day or week by checking the settings. 

Try this: Use your time intentionally by investing in YOU. If you’re feeling drained or stuck at work, reboot with a bite-sized video to get you back on track. With TONE’s modular learning and playlist functionality, in just 5-10 minutes a day, you too can become an expert on anything from productivity to time management!
