Stay Off Social Media

Comparing yourself to others on social media can have an underlying influence on your self-esteem. Social media tends to skew information, giving people a platform to display what they have and neglecting to show what they don’t. If you are constantly reminded of what you don’t have by measuring yourself against others, it is possible that this can impede your own happiness.

Make it a habit to stay off social media for at least one day a week. Use those 24 hours to separate yourself from the emotions you feel when comparing yourself to others and detox your mind. Over time, this can help you start to regain your sense of self.
