How To Not Let Social Media Affect Your Mental Health

Social media can take its toll at times, and I try not to let it affect me. You can get into this vicious cycle of picking up your phone, opening the app, scrolling, putting your phone down and repeat. I wanted to discuss ways to help people that think they're becoming a bit too obsessed with their phones.

I know that I am not an expert yet I am a little addicted to my phone. It's easy to get irritated by certain things, and this can play on your mind. We try to obsess over someone else's life or become too involved on what someone else is doing. It's time to focus on yourself by physically putting the phone away and mentally becoming better a person. 

Remember, It's not everything you see. I find Instagram to be the worst culprit, especially with celebrities. You want to follow people and see what's going on in people's lives, but when you're sat in your pyjamas, wearing no bra and not looking your best, it can make you feel very shitty. I always try to remember that their life isn't perfect 24/7, I find myself on Instagram when I am doing nothing all day, and this can make you insecure thinking 'why aren't I doing that?'. We only see the best bits and why would you want to see their private life? I try not to scroll on Instagram too long as it puts me in a mood.

Clear out your friends list. You're on Facebook and BAM! You're instantly annoyed, why? The person you dislike is all over your page. I always question myself as to why I still have people that were mean to me at school, and sure, they've maybe grown up, but those feelings and hurt are still there. The best way for me was to delete them because why let yourself get upset up from someone who you have not spoken to in for so long still affect your life. Get rid and move on. 

Put your phone away a few hours before you sleep. I can fail this a lot as when I cannot sleep I end up playing Candy Crush. My head can ache, or I'm a lot more tired when I use my phone right before I go to sleep... saying that I do watch TV before I go to bed, but if it's a cosy movie, then I prefer that than scrolling on social media.

Try to minimise going on your phone each day. The worst thing about social media is that it is super addictive. You can get crazily obsessed to your phone and especially now we have the screen time showing us how long you're on the phone, that scared me a lot. Those hours I'm spending on social media, I could be doing something worthwhile. The thing that made me realise that I can be slightly addictive is when I had my phone in my bag, and I kept reaching out on the table thinking my phone was there, I knew from then I had to cut this out.

Do you find social media can affect you in any way?

My Top 5 Crazy Ex-Girlfriend songs

Crazy Ex-Girlfriend has become my absolute favourite, I have watched this in over a year, and I am so glad that I found this,  I am not a huge fan of musicals, but I am obsessed now. It's a shame the current season is their final ever though I do get where they are going with the show, I will miss this and the fantastic songs they produce each episode. The show is brilliant itself, and I am also obsessed with the soundtrack.

I have been playing the soundtrack out of my car nonstop and wanted to share my top 5 favourites with you all.

Sexy Getting Ready Song. As you would all know, this was from the first episode from season one, and once I saw this song, I instantly knew that this show was for me. It's witty, sexy and shows you what it's like getting ready for us girls - it's not pretty!

FriendTopia. Squad goals or what?! Not only is this a catchy tune, but they have also gone and done a Spice Girls tribute. The only thing that I think would've been better is for Paula to be in this too. I honestly don't think there's been a day where I haven't played this.

I Go To The Zoo. Oh, Nathaniel. I couldn't stand him at first. I wanted Greg back but after he gave us this banger... I think I love him a tiny bit more than Greg (sorry, Greg!) This song just made me love him and made me realise he is a cutie. 

Sex With A Stranger. Not only is the song hilarious, but the video is also iconic. Rachel Bloom is just absolutely comedy gold. I think it's the line 'is that a gun? Oh thank god, it's just your penis' that gets me. Brilliant. 

A Boy Band Made Up of Four Joshes. The song brought back the nostalgic 90's feeling. It's hilarious and very catch. If you see me driving, you will find me singing this song. Out loud. With no shame... but paying attention of course.

Have you seen Crazy Ex-Girlfriend and do you have a favourite song??

Top 5 | British Comedies 90s - 00s

If I could watch one type of shows, it would be British Sitcoms. I adore them. I have watched them from such a young age and find them hilarious. They're used to be a lot of British comedy shows on TV, and I am not keen on the ones that on TV these days, though I do love This Country if you haven't seen that, it is on BBC Three and it is hilarious.

Before Gogglebox we had The Royle Family. This show is about a family from Manchester sitting in their lounge watching TV all day, and it's as simple as that.  What I love about this show is that all they do is watch TV and it goes to show it's not always about what you're doing, and you can engage the audience without it being over the top. You can watch this and see parts of yourself or your family in this, I love that it's not this 'perfect' family, there are arguments, bad language and having dinner on the sofa.

My all-time favourite show ever. I honestly adore Rik Mayall. I've watched this show since I can remember, it's crude, but I love it. The bottom was created and starred by Rik Mayall and Ade Edmonson, who also did The Young Ones - which is also a fantastic programme. The show involves two middle-aged men desperate to find their 'bird' causing mayhem and living in their pit together.  Not to everyone's liking but I think this is a fantastic programme.

'Get back you bastard, or I'll break your legs!'. One of a kind. Many fantastic quotes that I use to this day, still. Peter Kay at his finest, a show about a working men's club. It's the characters that make the show which had Max & Paddy which became a spin-off later on. I hope and would love if they did a reunion.

This comedy was about two thirtysomethings trying to be something they are not. Linda, a redhead who thinks she is 'God's gift' but in reality, she has no job and no life aspects but just pictures of Liam Gallagher on her bedroom wall. Tom, the loveable gay, dreams to be an actor and wants more to life than living with Linda, where really, Linda is all he has. I get the Bottom vibe from this show, two lonesome people living together, hating life and beating each other up. Love it.

ather Ted Crilly, Father Dougal McGuire and Father Jack Hackett live together in Craggy Island. You will always find the Christmas special near the festive season on Channel 4, and it's truly amazing. I love each episode and especially love when Graham Norton is on them. Feck. Arse. Girls.

Are you a fan of British comedy?
