OH! Magazine - Australian Version August 2016 - Page 2

THIS MAGAZINE IS PRODUCED BY: ALL SMILES CREATIVE Publisher FOR OPTIMUM HEALTH, MAINTAIN A HEALTHY PERSPECTIVE With the explosion of social media and so many of us stuck in that familiar posture with the neck bent down, head stuck to a screen and our digits constantly scrolling, tapping and swiping, it's no wonder we may occasionally lose our perspective and sometimes even, our grip on reality! The thing to remember when you're eyeballing all those posts is that what you're seeing is not necessarily real. For example, those online 'friends' are not necessarily your real friends; the online lives that are on full display, are not always accurate reflections of people's actual lives. What you see when you're trawling through social media pages is what people want you to see – not necessarily what is real. And it pays to remember that if your social media experiences are leaving you feeling less than excited about your own life, then it might be time to shut it down and take a social media detox for a while. While social media has contributed a great many things to our modern society, it has also simultaneously created quite a few problems as well. For optimum health we need to maintain our perspective and that means focusing on what matters most – which is real life. Do you agree?
