Many people believe they need Facebook. And they believe they need the social media app to stay connected with friends and family.

But the opposite is actually true.

More than any social network, Facebook isolates us from the world and the people we care about most.

It’s also a huge time-sink, and it’s dangerous for our mental health.

Studies have shown, time and time again, that Facebook is harmful to our well-being, and it can lead to envy and depression.

Facebook is especially harmful to adolescents and young millennials.

Regardless of age, everyone feels the harmful effects of Facebook, whether they realize it.

But we keep going back.

Why? Because we’re addicted to Facebook. Whether we want to admit it.

So, what can we do about it?

The solution is actually simple:

Quit Facebook.

I know, it seems daunting. Nevertheless, quitting Facebook is one of the best things you can do for your brain. And your mental health.

Trust me, I’ve been there.

I was once addicted to Facebook. Checking my notifications became a compulsive habit. I would scroll through my newsfeed without watching the clock, losing track of time, even when I had more important things to do.

I realized checking Facebook constantly was dangerous to my mental health. I’d compare myself to others and feel envy at their seemingly perfect lives.

When that sense of envy kept pestering my mind, I realized I had to do something about it. So, I took the plunge and quit Facebook.

And it was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made.

Now, I don’t miss Facebook at all. In fact, I feel much better without it.

Well, it’s now time for you to break the cycle, too. It’s time to unshackle…
