During the fast few months we have looked and heard about traumatic news. From the tragic death of Koby Bryant & his daughter.

Social media can make events feel like they’re even harder to get through. In times of sadness and traumatic news, it’s important to protect your mental health. Here are 3 steps, according to xoNecole, that you can take now to take care of yourself.

1. Know what your triggers are.

In the days of social media, your first impulse when something happens can be to tune in to your favorite platform to get the latest updates as news unfolds. If one platform isn’t giving you what we need, you may find yourself going from site to site and social platform to social platform.

2. Create boundaries.

Once you figure out your triggers are it’s ok to let your family and friends know. Create healthy boundaries for yourself by requesting that they don’t send you anymore information or footage.

Create the space you need to feel better and give your family and friends the information they need to support you in doing this.
