Social media is filled with images of people living seemingly perfect lives, but how much of it is real, and how much is curated?
It’s easy to get overwhelmed with the images we’re bombarded with every day, and start to question ourselves: Am I hot enough? Do I have as much fun as them? Do people like me?
It’s enough to make you want to throw your phone in the bin sometimes, we know. But before you do, check this out…
Our mates at Zeal are running the #LiveForTomorrow photo challenge again this year. It encourages us all to celebrate life, in the lead up to World Suicide Prevention Day on September 10.
All you have to do is post a photo a day, in response to the daily themes. Use #LiveForTomorrow and you’re in. You’re part of the movement.
Why does it work? It brings us moments of mindfulness, which means being open to the ‘here and now’, the present – instead of getting caught up in worries about the future or the past. It’s when you stop to consider a beautiful day, really taste that coffee, or give your full attention to a friend. Mindfulness helps our mental health.
Each day’s challenge helps you be mindful and grateful of the good!
Mental health struggles affect so many of us, yet there is still so much stigma. We need to change that – and you can be a part of that change. Last year over 2,000 people got involved in the Live For Tomorrow Photo Challenge, reaching 3.2 million feeds. This year we want to spread the conversation even wider.
We’ll be taking part in the challenge, over on @TearawayMag. And we pledge to post a bunch of your #LiveForTomorrow pics on Tearaway, to spread the awareness even further.
OK, day one. Let’s do this!
