We have all been there. In an idle moment, you instinctively reach for your smartphone to browse your social media feed. The goal is simple: an easy distraction. But the effect is sometimes complicated. Many of us enjoy social media to stay connected with friends, family, colleagues, or groups of individuals with similar interests, but there is inherently an ugly side too. That side where you see something-the perfect family photo, the vacation picture, the promotion of a work accomplishment-and think, “I wish that were me,” can have negative mental health effects.
