The holiday season can be a stressful time for anyone and with all the forced cheer and merriment presented on social media the pressure to be ‘happy’ can have us questioning why we don’t feel it. We must take time to remember a post or picture on social media is a snapshot of someone’s life and can be manufactured for that split second and manipulated to tell a specific story.
Selfcare is so important, and part of self care can be avoiding social media. What we see in a picture is not always a true reflection of reality. Switch off for a while and notice how different you feel. You are not failing, you are not doing anything wrong, you are important as are your feelings
3 tips for self care
1. stop comparing yourself to others, you are unique
2. Take timeout to do the things that make you smile
3. Be ok with how you feel for today
