Why It's Important To Protect Your Mental Health Online
I believe that social media can negatively impact of mental health without us even knowing it. 'From Roses' has an incredible post about protecting your mental health online & why it's so important.
I wanted to share this with you guys today because social media has become such a big part of our day to day lives, whether that's for work or personal use. There's definitely a lot we still have to learn but I think this post by 'From Roses' is a great place to start.
Why It's Important To Protect Your Mental Health Online; From Roses
"When I began my blogging journey 8 years ago I never imagined it would have a negative effect on my mental health. It was such a positive & joyous place to share my thoughts on whatever I was loving at the time & it's not until recent years have I realised how important it is to protect your mental health online whether you're a content creator or someone who consumes online content. You can't move for posts & articles all about how the online world is so damaging for our self-esteem but what those posts always forget to mention is how much good the internet can do for people. I know there are certainly things that I struggle with but there are plenty more that I have to be grateful for & this is how I protect my mental health."
