Can you imagine life without social media? If this was a poll online, most of you, if not all, would’ve hit the "no" option. And no one can blame you, considering we are the digital generation. We log onto Instagram before we brush. However, once in a while, social media detox is essential. Unfortunately, there is no green juice you can drink to rid yourself of the toxins doomscrolling brings, but you can put your phone away for a few hours every day or follow in the footsteps of numerous celebrities (we are talking about Taylor Swift, Ed Sheeran, Tom Holland, and Demi Lavato) and just take a clean hiatus from all social media.
The question most of us have is: Why do we need a social media detox? It’s simple. Nothing in excess is ever good. Endless scrolling and going deep down the Instagram or Twitter rabbit hole takes a toll on your body and mind. It leaves us feeling on edge and uneasy, and sometimes makes us question ourselves and our life choices. Numerous studies have linked excessive use of social media to depression, anxiety, and low self-esteem. Thus, a cleanse every few weeks is extremely crucial.
