Why go #ScrollFree this September

Social media is great at connecting people from all walks of life, but have you ever thought about how it may be having a negative impact on your life?  By going scroll free for a month, you’ll have a chance to reflect on your social media use, what you missed, what you didn’t and what you got to do and enjoy instead.

3/4 of those who went scroll free in 2018 said it improved their mental health according to the Royal Society for Public Health
