The first thing many people do when they recognise a wellbeing challenge is to share it immediately on social media. The comfort of knowing you are not alone is extremely valuable. But you can do yourself a big disservice by hanging around there.

What you do not realise about social media is how it dilutes the energy you require to resolve your challenge. You not only have to function as normal, but also seek to rise above the limitations that challenge has placed on your life. Stepping up, taking those first steps requires a tremendous amount of energy; it pays to be aware of things that dissipate it.

Social media requires us to mythicise our everyday existence. And we all buy into that trap of wanting to be seen as heroic, or the one with all the answers. But none of that takes you one step closer to better wellbeing, chef.
