Keeping the habit of taking selfies with a reasonable frequency helps you live a happier, healthier and healthier life than people who don’t take pictures.
The way you take care of yourself
A study co-conducted by Dr Liz Brewster (Lancaster University) and Dr Andrew Cox (University of Sheffield), both in the UK, recorded the photographs study participants took, the content they added and how they interacted with others online in two months.
The researchers found that daily photography improves health through self-care, community interactions, and the potential for reminiscence. According to research, taking selfies helps people rest and be more mindful of their day.
One survey participant said that her daily work is stressful, taking pictures like a breath of fresh air helps her experience something different.
For others, taking pictures of themselves gives them a sense of purpose and accomplishment. That encourages them to get out of the house instead of just sitting with a cup of tea.
After a day of stooping or stooping, take a good selfie for their posture. “It also forces you to stop and smell a flower, look around for a beautiful scene or photograph subject,” said one study participant.
A group of researchers studied smiling people who took selfies every day for several weeks, 2016. The results showed that, even with fake smiles, they also saw improved mood.
“That puts me at ease thinking ‘this is probably what I’ll see for the rest of the day,'” one person said.
Sending selfies to friends or loved ones also creates happiness.
Unbeknownst to many people, regularly taking pictures of yourself can make you feel more satisfied and confident about your image and body.
Research published in the journal Social psychology and personality science showed that people who liked to take selfies found it more attractive and liked than those who didn’t.
One tick in a day can also banish bouts of boredom. “As the days went by, I became more comfortable taking pictures of myself. If you feel good about yourself, a selfie is a way to record it,” one study participant shared. .
Another said that taking daily selfies helped him smile more and noticed less stress on his face.
Capture beautiful moments and memories
Daily selfies can be a way of documenting personal growth. For example, a person who has been going through a personal crisis, looking back at a photo of that time, can reflect on how he has changed.
He has witnessed how he slowly survives the dark days and even elements from the photo like light and color, remind him of bright moments.
Nostalgia is also very good for mental health, helping to increase vitality. When looking back on good memories through selfies, you have the opportunity to review your own memories, with friends and relatives.
Stay connected socially
Posting selfies on social media helps some people discover connections, start conversations, and find support groups. For example, new retirees feel that posting photos, receiving interactive comments under photos helps them connect with colleagues like still working.
Others shared photos of themselves, along with their grief, with friends on social media. When they are comforted and encouraged, they feel less sad and even healed.
There’s the term “Selfitis,” which means obsessive compulsion to take pictures of yourself and post them on social media. Selfies are good for us, but too much can lead to “selfitis”. According to the researchers, only 1-2 pictures should be taken a day, but if you post up to 6 photos a day online, it is a sign of “chronic selfitis”.
If you find your photos constantly receiving nasty comments or have little interaction, it’s time to think about taking a selfie.
