It's easy to blame digital stress on big social media companies that exploit our attention and emotions for profit. But remember: we contribute to it ourselves. How often are you distracted by a trivial message from a friend or family member? More importantly, how often do you send meaningless messages that only distract others? It's time for mindful messaging.

Before you send a message, ask yourself:
Is it true?
Is it helpful?
Can it be received?

These three rules will help you share messages more thoughtfully. Your friends and family will thank you.
