Tom Holland Finds Twitter, Instagram Overstimulating; Shares Video On Mental Health!
After a long time, Tom Holland shared a video of himself on Instagram. The actor revealed that he was on a social media hiatus for his mental health. In the video, Tom said that he finds ‘Instagram and Twitter overstimulating.’
Tom Holland in the video said, “Hi guys, so I’ve been trying to make this do an hour now, and for someone that has spent the last 13, 14 years, however long I’ve been acting, I cannot seem to say what I need to say without ‘umming’ and ‘arring’ every five minutes. So I’m going to try again. So I have taken a break from social media for my mental health, because I find Instagram and Twitter to be overstimulating, to be overwhelming.”
He also said, “I get caught up and I spiral when I read things about me online and ultimately it’s very detrimental to my mental state. So I decided to take a step back and delete the app. On this very, very brief return to Instagram, I thought it would be very important and a good idea to shed some light on a charity that we sponsor which is stem4. Stem4 is a wonderfully innovative education program. Its pioneering apps, clinically advised website, and its mental health conferences helped contribute towards helping young kids who were suffering.” Watch the video here.
He captioned the video, “Hello and goodbye… I have been taking a break from social media for my mental health, but felt compelled to come on here to talk about @stem4org . Stem4 is one of the many charities @thebrotherstrust is extremely proud to support – and I’d like to take a moment to shine a light on their fantastic work. Please take the time to watch my video, and should you feel inclined to share it with anyone who it may resonate with – it would be greatly appreciated.”
Justin Bieber commented, “Love you man.” Fans commented, “I think we all need a break from Instagram sometimes. See ya, Tom,” “It’s okaayyy tom, hope you have a great life,” “I thought he was about to say he’s quitting acting” etc.
