I. Introduction
Social workers are known for supporting others; however, while doing so, they face challenging circumstances which then leads to burnout (McGarrigle & Walsh, 2011). Some social workers also attend graduate school, have careers, and a busy home life that can build stressful situations for them. It is important for one, especially social workers and social work graduate students, to have self-care and positively practice wellness on a regular basis to prevent oneself from burn out. In 2015, it is common for one to use social media as an outlet from their hectic reality. Internet addiction is rapidly developing in the world (Watson, 2005) and clinicians are experiencing difficulties in treating clients; cognitive behavioral therapy is an approach that is commonly used (Didelot, Hollingsworth, & Buckenmeyer, 2012).
Subjective Well-Being
According to Ryan & Deci (2001), “the concept of well-being refers to optimal psychological functioning and experience.” There are two ways of affect one can experience in their emotions. Positive affect is an optimistic way of showing one’s emotions, such as feeling excited or attentive. Negative affect is one’s way of showing a negative outlook, such as feeling distressed or ashamed. According to John & Wright (2006), well-being is defined as one’s quality of life. The organized framework of quality of life has emerged recently to assess health guides within the medical and mental health fields (John & Wright, 2006).
