Is social media affecting your mental health ?

Is social media affecting your mental health ? a question I find myself asking all the time. After watching Bailey Parnell’s TEDx talk – Is social media hurting your mental health. It made me self reflect on the countless times I have spent scrolling through Instagram asking myself the same questions Bailey Parnell asked herself . Why am not that successful? , if only I was that beautiful , doubting my self worth over others instagram posts and instagram highlights . I really have been so sucked into the social currency like talked about in the TEDx talk I had forgotten just like me those perfect posts and highlights were only the best of a persons life not reality . I have noticed as my social media use goest up it does affect my mental health. I get anxiety over the way I looked over a post , anxiety over of missing out if I took time to social media detox . With 70% of Canadians on social media I know I am not alone , Has social media affected your mental health if so how?
