CNBC Health-Tech Says Quitting Social Media Changed Her Life
By: Brianna Wigfall
Social media can have a huge impact on your life, and sometimes you don’t realize that the amount of time you spend on these platforms can be damaging to one’s mental health. Christina Farr, a CNBC health-tech reporter, says she has stayed away from Instagram and Facebook for three months, and it’s made her a lot happier. After realizing that her utilization time on Facebook was far more than she had thought, she decided to see how she would do with a social media cleanse.
“In August I made a big decision. I removed Facebook and Instagram apps off my phone and logged out on the web. I didn’t get around to fully disabling or deleting them, as I wanted to see first how I’d respond to a month-long break. Baby steps, I told myself,” she said.
