Is your social media platform affecting your mental well-being? Here’s what to do!

There is no doubt that social media platforms such as Facebook, Instagram and Twitter have brought the world much closer. However, their addiction and overdependence has led to a detrimental impact on most of our mental well-being. What’s worrisome is that the negative impact of these forums has only increased during the pandemic- a phase where emotional and mental well-being have required utmost care besides physical health.

But it is hard to imagine a life without social media due to its several benefits. While cortisol may rise due to a single Instagram post, the level oxytocin- the brain chemical involved in connection, empathy, trust, generosity and sharing also increases. If you frequently feel sad while seeing others’ posts, it is time to take a break from social media for a while.

Unfollow accounts that do not make you feel good. Do not engage with other’s posts or post your own content when anxious or stressed. Ensure people, communities, and brands you follow on social platforms infuse positivity in you.

Humans are hard-wired to be social. There is no doubt that social media platforms such as Facebook, Instagram and Twitter have brought the world much closer. However, their addiction and overdependence has led to a detrimental impact on most of our mental well-being.
