I think social media can also be addictive, which can have its own negative impact on mental health. It’s so easy to get caught up in scrolling and constantly checking for notifications, which can be really distracting and draining.
That’s true. It’s up to us to set boundaries around social media use and to be mindful of how it’s affecting our mental health. We can also make a conscious effort to curate our social media feeds to include more positive and uplifting content.
Social media can also have some positive effects on mental health. For example, it can help us connect with others who share our interests and experiences, and it can be a great source of support and validation.
I agree. It can be really hard to remember that social media is just a highlight reel and not an accurate representation of someone’s entire life. But it’s easy to get sucked into comparing ourselves to others and feeling like we’re not good enough.
