28 July 2016 - Social Networking is a great modern day tool for people to connect with friends and share triumphs and momentous moments, however this sadly is not always the case.  It can be a breeding ground for anxieties and insecurities which can lead to detachment from real life.

Smartchoicefitness.com recognises Social media anxieties as a reality of today’s lifestyle not just in the United States but worldwide.  If not personally affected, then the chances are extremely high that a family member or friend will be suffering from this negative side effect and more must be done to highlight the issue.

Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat, Instagram are a few of the modern day ways of connecting with ‘friends’.  Just look around to see cellphones seemingly surgically attached to hands — perhaps checking to see if a photo which has been uploaded on Facebook has received the expected number of ‘likes’ or that a Twitter post has been retweeted……otherwise the person could feel like a social failure.  Sounds dramatic? Sadly not.  A report recently published by Anxiety.org states that ‘social media has become an anxiety-provoking factor’.  Furthermore, it is reported by the University of Chicago that social media is “more addictive” addictive than cigarettes’.

http://smartchoicefitness.com has helpful advice and tips on how to deal with anxiety in general, but also focuses on the connection between heightened anxiety and social media.  A spokesperson from SmartChoice Fitness, says ‘Social Media can be a fantastic way to keep in touch with friends all over the world but unfortunately it is not always a positive experience. For a person who may already feel unsure of their social standing, not getting ‘likes’ and comments on their posts can easily be felt as rejection.’  They further go on to say ‘The age of instant response (eg cellphones, texts and social media) sadly creates as much negative energy as it does positive.’

In light of this, SmartChoice Fitness have dedicated a page on their website discussing the impact that social media can have on anxiety, suggesting self-help tips and more importantly acknowledging that this is a real issue.

SmartChoice Fitness also have a natural anti-anxiety supplement called Tranquillity, which is marketed under their SC Natural brand, to help people who may just need that little bit of extra support. ‘Visit our website to get some great self-help tips’, says SmartChoice Fitness ‘but do not feel you cannot reach out for further help in the way of a supplement.  Our vitamin rich anxiety relief Tranquility capsules are completely natural and made in the USA and will be there if and when needed.’

Diet and exercise is hugely important to physical wellbeing, but mental wellbeing is no less important to ensure people feel their best everyday.
