Tips on Healthy Living

Is Social Media Inspirational?


So much pressure is put on people these days with social media; whether it be to take the right picture that matches their feed, use the 'right' filter, or hanging round with the 'right' people, I can't quite get my head around it. It is human nature to project only our best selves onto social media sites, just so we can keep up with the latest trends. So many people are put under this pressure daily, and it can seriously affect their mental and physical health, which is a major concern. I've come up with some tips to prevent you from letting the pressure affect your health and self-esteem, and I hope they help.

Accept that nobody is the same in real life. If I were to see my friends Instagram profiles without actually knowing them, I would have the complete wrong idea of what they were like as a person, and what their interests were etc. After realising this, I am always careful to tell myself that those perfect Instagram profiles only reflect about 20% of their actual life. Even those perfect Instagrammers have bad days, greasy hair and friendship issues occasionally, and I think it is really important for people to realise that. Don't compare your 100% self to someone else's 20%.

A 3 Step Guide To Google Analytics

How To Get The Most Out Of Your Camera
