"I started off 2017 by taking a 2.5 month long break from social media. I wasn’t someone who used social media a ton anyways but I just noticed how often I used it as a distraction or in small bursts and figured it would be a fun challenge.
"After doing it that first time and multiple more times since, I can honestly not recommend it more. I found myself having more focus and clarity, I felt less stressed and overwhelmed, and I found myself having more time and what felt like better control over my life as a whole. Those small bursts throughout the day add up to a lot and, at least with me, I was able to realise how big of an effect social media had on my mental health. 10/10 would recommend."
