She went on to say: “It’s been amazing to work on this campaign with @lush & @iamwholeuk and we’ve had thousands of comments and messages from you all throughout the week saying that a particular video has helped you or that the campaign has already opened your eyes up to how best to use social media and the affect it has on your mental health.”

“It’s SO important that we all tailor our usage in order to get the best bits from it & feel good when using it. – She added.

And just like that it’s the day before #digitaldetoxday 🙌🏼 If you’re joining us and taking part in Digital Detox Day, post a photo of you today across your social media channels with the “OFF” sign on your hand and share it with the hashtag to your followers, letting them know that you’ll be offline tomorrow (September 5th) ✨ It’s been amazing to work on this campaign with @lush & @iamwholeuk and we’ve had thousands of comments and messages from you all throughout the week saying that a particular video has helped you or that the campaign has already opened your eyes up to how best to use social media and the affect it has on your mental health. It’s SO important that we all tailor our usage in order to get the best bits from it & feel good when using it. Don’t forget that the IRL bath bomb is available to buy in LUSH stores and online and the money raised from the bomb will go into the wholeness fund which will make grants available to grassroots charities & wellbeing focus groups across the world. If you are one of those small grassroots charities, groups, local projects or self-help initiatives be sure to apply on the @iamwholeuk website. And if you haven’t purchased a bath bomb yet, GO GRAB ONE. These are a limited supply, so once they’re gone, they’re gone. I’m excited to spend tomorrow completely detached from social media and feeling a lot more present. How will you be spending your Digital Detox Day? SEE YOU ON SUNDAY! 👋

Social media definitely has a negative impact on our mental health, glad it’s being brought to everyone’s attention
