Pain, Chronic Pain, Mental Health: Social Media And Self-Esteem

Good morning,

Have you ever scrolled through social media and felt WORSE afterward?

Social Media & Health Information

Research shows that too much social media can damage your self-esteem

… especially if you find that you’re comparing yourself to others – not just your friends but also celebs and health & fitness influencers.

The TRUTH Behind Those Social Media Images

Because often, you’re only seeing the END RESULT of a lot of hard work. Probably YEARS of hard work.

Sure, they might make it look easy in their carefully curated (and often photoshopped) Instagram or FB photos. In fact, it might even look “glamorous.”

But the truth is, especially with the influencers, what you’re actually seeing is the result of incredible day-in and day-out dedication to their workouts, meal planning, sleep, and stress management.

There is NO such thing as an overnight success. There never has been, and there never will be. Let me say that again – NO such thing as an overnight success.

Look, depending on the type of pain, chronic pain, or mental health condition a person may have, it got there over time (aside from acute pain). It will also take time to start feeling better, have less pain flare-ups and get both body and mind “re-wired” towards better health, so that you can have more energy and better quality of a day and days.

So, the comparison can be counterproductive and can quickly derail your success you are gaining.

You Deserve So Much More Than That!

What you want to do is allow that to INSPIRE you to work harder and continue down your path …  not make you feel “less than” or bad about yourself and your body.

Example Of Inspirational Influence

If they have results that you want for yourself, use that energy toward your OWN health and wellness journey … and get after it as passionately as they do!

This will build your confidence, your energy, and give you the results you’re looking for.

(Plus, you might even spend LESS TIME on social media, which actually is correlated with improved self-esteem.)

It’s a win-win-win all the way around!

Make your day an amazing day,

Francois
