Social media not good for mental health, says Actress Daisy Ridley


LOS ANGELES: ‘Star Wars’ actress  Daisy Ridley believes that social media is not good for mental health and vowed never to go back on social media.

The actress, who quit social media in September of last year, also dubbed the habit of social media “highly unhealthy for people’s mental health”.

In an interview with Radio Times, the actress said “I came off it [social media] last September and I will never go back on.”

Ridley continues: “The more I read about teenage anxiety, the more I think it’s highly unhealthy for people’s mental health. It’s such a weird thing for young people to look at distorted images of things they should be”.

The actress sounded off the views in her interview with Glamour, saying she quit Instagram last July over unkind comments.

Ridley said, “I posted a thing about gun regulations, because I was at [the Teen Choice Awards tribute to shootings in Aurora, Baton Rogue, Dallas, Minneapolis, Orlando, San Bernardino, Newtown]. People weren’t nice about how I looked. And I was like, ‘I’m out.’ Simple as that. That is not what I signed up for…And I didn’t sign up for people to go, ‘You’re amazing!’ But I didn’t sign up for them to say things like, ‘Your skin is s***’ either.”

Commenting about his anxiety, she spelled out, “I have to come first, because if I am not healthy—I was struggling with anxiety last year—if I’m not mentally healthy, or I’m depleted from sharing so much, I won’t have anything left for when people approach me.”
