Is Social Media Making You Feel Bad About Your Body?

Is Social Media Making You Feel Bad About Your Body?

Okay don’t worry, social media isn’t the devil and I’m not about to go all boomer on you but hear me out…

It can be super bad for your mental wellbeing.

I don’t mean the fact that you’re on your phone all of the time (like I said, not going all boomer), but are you spending your time on social media making yourself feel bad?

I was, without even realising it I was following people who made me feel like crap about myself, and in particular my body.

We know that ‘diet culture’ is toxic, and I really hope no one is following anyone promoting appetite suppressant teas or ‘meal replacement’ shakes (spoiler alert – they’re full of laxatives, but what else promotes a toxic relationship with your body?
