With the weather looking brighter and the days getting longer, what better way to use the weekend than by catching up with friends in the outdoors. Two thirds of us spend, on average, 100 minutes on social media every day. 🤳👩💻 So this weekend, I’m prescribing your eyes a rest from your cell phones and computers and urging you to get outdoors and observe the natural beauty that surrounds us.
Calling all Australians 🇦🇺 In 2018 we spent 5.9 billion hours on social media. Whilst this is a great platform for getting inspiration and communicating with loved ones, it’s also having a detrimental affect on our mental health.
Research has shown that social media can impact our self esteem, affect our sleep, change our human interaction and make us unhappy.
So next time you feel like checking Snapchat, Instagram or Tinder, pause and take a look out the window, there’s a whole world out there to be discovered.
