34. The Dark Side of Social Media: Weight Gain, Anxiety, and Depression

Season #5

It's a topic that hits close to home for me, as I have experienced the negative impacts first hand. 

ğŸŽ¯ Here are 3 key takeaways from the episode:

1️⃣ Social media can contribute to weight gain. The constant exposure to unrealistic beauty standards and curated images can trigger negative self-talk and body dissatisfaction. This can lead to emotional eating and a sedentary lifestyle.

2️⃣ It's important to prioritize your mental health. Scrolling through social media feeds before bedtime can disrupt your sleep patterns, leading to increased levels of stress hormone (cortisol) and hunger hormone (ghrelin). Creating a smartphone-free bedtime routine can promote better sleep and overall well-being.

3️⃣ Awareness and boundaries are key. Recognize the impact that social media has on your mental state and take steps to manage it consciously. Setting limits on your social media usage, engaging in activities that bring you joy, and focusing on self-care can help alleviate anxiety and depression caused by excessive screen time.

Remember, you have the power to change your reality! 😊💪 Let's strive for a healthier relationship with social media and prioritize our well-being. 🌟
