Trust your emotions

Not all content is evil, and Hussain even mentions the many mental health experts who are putting on live social media events and creating platforms to uplift followers, promoting better emotional wellbeing. She just strongly encourages us to pay attention to how content makes us feel, and pivot when necessary. “Lean into your feelings. If you are finding content to be comforting, allow yourself to do so,” she says. “Sometimes it helps looking at social media and coping on our own. If you realize you are getting more trapped and lost, then step away and perhaps take time to self-care, call a friend, or even rest/meditate.”
