Story #255

  • Mental health

    I know that instagram is designed to keep me scrolling and keep me coming back for more, but no amount of awareness or knowledge of better habits stops me from doom scrolling. It really affects my sleep, mood and productivity. If I’m already in a dark place I find myself sucked in even more and it feels like insta is designed to specifically prey on this vulnerability even more.
