Stop delaying taking care of your mental health and reduce your social media consumption now.
Working on mental health is just as important as working on physical health when it comes to long term weight loss.

10 to 15 minutes to catchup on messages or upload a picture from earlier in the day is perfectly fine. But just like snacking, doing it over and over again or for long periods of time is detrimental to our health.
