On this week's episode of ShrinkChicks, Emmalee and Jen dive into the topic of social media and the apps we spend so much time on. They discuss the positives and negatives of social media, comparing ourselves to someone else's highlight reel, the things that exist beyond the highlight reel, why Jen is struggling with the idea of posting pictures of her summer so far, and being conscious of our feelings when we scroll. They also touch on taking social media breaks and the fear that can come along with that. Dear Em & Jen tackles the question: how to tell your boss you need a mental health day when they don't understand. Tune in to gain insight, awareness and action!
