Podcast: Put Down Your Phone – Social Media and the Mind

social media.gif

Last week we recorded a podcast on social media and how this impacts your mental well being. As a group of girls in our late twenties we feel that our generation have been privileged (or maybe not so privileged) to have seen the world both before and after the trends of Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and Snapchat.

In this cast we discuss “The Gathering Crisis”, the live for likes, Face-tuning, blogging, networks, communities and how we feel social media has impacted our mental well being.

As always, thanks for reading and listening.

Enjoy, B x

A twenty - something (seven) single year old living the London life. My life consists of eating and wanting to stay thin, wanting to party and also eat pizza alone in bed, working hard or hardly working and dating. My blog is around mental health, life in London, dating, brunching and on the odd occasion stalking dogs! Enjoy - it has been as fun living it as it had writing it <3

  1. I really enjoyed this; most of what you said I agreed with, especially the issue around stalking. I’m finding that I’m getting stalked loads by matches and potential matches – with my surname I’m fairly easy to track down, which is easy enough to find after a basic google. Not a problem, but I’m pretty sure it’s putting people off before they ever get to know me as they find out I’m a single dad. Is it that scary a thing?!

    I’m not sure I agree at all, though, with the points on how other people use social media. You slated some people for talking about their journey to school/work and then commented that you use it to post your own images of good food you are eating or interesting places you’re in; everyone is interested in different things, and some are as interested in your meal as you are in their journey. If it helps connect people then it’s doing its job imho.

    Anyway, as I say, I’m really enjoying these; wanted to start a dating podcast of my own but realised that few would be interested in hearing of the struggles of a single dad looking for love!

    Oh, and for the love of god, please, someone, anyone, change the battery in the smoke alarm so it doesn’t beep through the whole recording!!! 🙂


      1. Honestly, it fooled me! I was listening at home on my laptop and genuinely went and checked my alarms, before realising that mine are hardwired so don’t have batteries to change!
