Ep #203: Social Media and Mental Health

The Design You Podcast with Tobi Fairley | Social Media and Mental Health

Do you ever feel completely drained after scrolling on social media? Do you feel like you have to be documenting what’s going on in your life or business because it’s the only way to be successful? Well, what I’m sharing with y’all this week might just change your mind about the way you’re using social media in your life.

Social media is all about the highlight reel. We see people being published in magazines, invited on fancy trips and speaker engagements, and we feel like we are not enough. But when we do this every day it leads to us never feeling enough and it takes a negative toll on our mental health. The worst thing is your technology and social media usage could be affecting your mental health without you even realizing it.

In this episode, I’m talking about social media, technology, and the toll it’s taking on our mental health. There are several problems with the way we use technology, so I’m sharing some tips to help you reduce your usage and showing you how to put boundaries around the way you are currently showing up on social media and with technology.
