Feeling Sad? This is how Social Media might be the reason for it!

  Social Media has become very common these days. From children to elderly people, everyone is on social media of some sort. While some use social media to connect with friends and family while others use it to escape the monotony of day-to-day work by viewing funny clips and memes.   Dopamine: Dopamine is called “the feel-good hormone” which is released into our body when we perform an activity that we crave. For example, eating something good, watching a movie that we have wanted to watch for so long, intimate relations, etc. trigger the release of dopamine which makes us feel good.   The relationship between dopamine and Social Media: All types of social media are forms of distraction in one way or the other.

We are living in a society where every average person is shown the dream “You can have it all”. And it is very easy to get caught in the fa├žade of “You can have it all”. As Mark Manson in his book “ The Subtle Art of not Giving a F*ck ” puts it- “ You and everyone you know are going to be dead soon. And in the short amount of time between here and there, you have a limited number of f*cks to give. Very few, in fact. And if you go around giving a f*ck about everything and everyone without conscious thought or choice—well, then you're going to get f*cked.” What I want to say by including this statement is that people say “Yes” to every opportunity thinking that the
