Declarations to Give Up Excessive Use of Social Media

Background Information:
The excessive use of social media has become a prevalent issue in modern society, affecting individuals of all ages. Studies show a significant correlation between heavy social media use and various mental health problems, including anxiety, depression, loneliness, and low self-esteem. The average person spends approximately 2.5 hours daily on social media platforms, often leading to a decrease in productivity, physical activity, and face-to-face interactions. This overreliance on digital communication can also disrupt sleep patterns and lead to an unhealthy comparison with others. The teachings of Jesus Christ and the principles found in the Bible offer guidance and wisdom for managing our time and priorities, encouraging a life of balance, contentment, and meaningful relationships.
