Don’t Be Absorbed By The Social Media Snapshot Of Life

In times like these, it is very easy to be absorbed by social media 24/7.

At SPC we are no different to you. We find oursleves doing it everyday. Is it actually any good for you?

Social media is made up of heavily curated moments that amplify the good times in someones life. However, this is not reality.

Seeing everyone else having such an amazing life, all with blessed relationships with beautiful people in fantastic shape, can mess with anyone’s head. If you find yourself in this situation, take a breath and just remember this simple fact.

We all have our problems. No one’s life is perfect. Nor do any of us have the monopoly on bad luck. The only comparison we should draw is with ourselves to push us to our best lives. Keeping up with the Joneses is a disaster on a local level, but on a global social media scale, it’s a full-blown mental health epidemic.

Follow those who bring joy, knowledge, happiness and inspiration to your life. Unfollow anyone who you find creates a level of anxiety (often subconscious) that makes you feel inadequate about yourself.

We often think about our physical health and often neglect the signs of unhappiness in our mental wellbeing.

This is worth thinking about.
