Instagram, social media impacts your mental health. Here’s how

You might be enjoying them, but you sure are not perceiving them the right way. A perfectly-curated Instagram feed has become one of the must-haves of millennials. A feed is not a feed if it doesn’t display photos in the same filter. A meal is not “Instagrammable” without succulents on the side.
