Do you ever wonder how social media affects your mental health? For Lauren, this question had been the center of her work for the past decade - exploring the intersection of mental health and social media use.

 

Give this episode a listen if you want to take back control of your life from the spell of infinite social media scrolls and live your life with more intention.

 

Here are the four major takeaways Lauren shares with us about what to keep in mind to build a better relationship with social media:

1. See it for what it is: Most importantly, be aware of the fact that social media was designed to keep you engaged as long as possible.

2. Create more than you consume - Focus on your own creation than other people's. Keep in control.

3. Keep your phone on greyscale - To stop your brain from overindulging the candy-colored realm of social media, keep it dull and boring. Impose the idea that real life is still so much better.

4. Consumerism and envy is real - Contentment is almost impossible there. So stay away from the feelings of envy.
