Hellooooooo Monday! Yes it's Monday, but its also Random Acts of Kindness Day and after the events of this weekend, I think its fair to reiterate that being kind is a vibe for everyday, not just one day. .
I get it, social media can feel blegh and competitive, and isolating, lonely and damn infuriating at times. For every three posts that make me roll my eyes, there's also one that makes me laugh and choke on my coffee (and yes, I take my own advice and unfollow those eye-roll accounts that make me sigh in exasperation). .
In this crazy digital age, there is simply no room for the fake, the noise and the drama. We have had enough. Sure, the servers aren’t saturated but we certainly are. We’ve had enough of the posting-for-the-sake-of-it, of second guessing the algorithm, and of feeling beholden to the internet. .
The fact that social media has an impact on our mental health is nothing new. The Royal Society for Public Health has compared different platforms to assess the impact they pose on our mental health and perhaps unsurprisingly, image-based platforms came out on top, with Instagram rated the worst for mental health, out of a list including Snapchat, Facebook, Twitter and Youtube. .
Be kind to yourself today, this space is yours. You don’t need to follow someone just because they follow you and we’ve all been internetting for long enough to know that when we show up online, we mostly share our shiny best selves. So who do you want be online? Do you want to be mummy? Or a badass boss babe? Maybe you share your social life but keep work quiet, or its a business account and so who needs to hear about the kids? .
