We all get caught scrolling the Internet from time to time. Especially now that TikTok exists. Do you also have “TikTok time” built into the day to help you unwind? Obviously, there are lots of positives and negatives of constantly being on social media. There are many times that I personally have taken a break for a while to try to reconnect with other parts of my life. It seems Selena Gomez decided to take one of these breaks, but for much longer than I’ve ever done.
According to Selena Gomez, she hasn’t been on the internet in four years. During an interview with Good Morning America, she said, “I haven’t been on the internet in four-and-a-half years. I am happier, I am more present. I connect more with people. It makes me feel normal.”
If you’re giving the side-eye look to this revelation despite being the fifth most-followed person on Instagram, she says that she doesn’t even have the popular app on her phone.
Bustle says Selena made the move to rid herself of social media for her mental health.
How long have you gone without social media? Do you take breaks from social media?
