How many times have you spent an evening sitting on Instagram or Facebook looking at other people having the time of their lives and feeling terrible about yourself?

Why Do We Compare Our Online Lives To Others?

00:00:00 / 00:00:00

Keeping up with the Joneses' has always been a factor of life, but social media has amplified it, made it available to us 24 hours a day and shows us often unattainable lifestyles.

So, how do you stop other people's online lives from impacting on you?

As part of a weeklong, Mind Yourself Now special to mark World Mental Health day, Chartered psychologist, Louize Carroll, joined Dermot and Dave to explain why we feel down by looking at other people's lives and how we can manage it.

Across the week, Dermot and Dave will be joined by a number of experts to look at everything from dark evenings to sleep, social anxiety and meditation.

You can catch the chat by clicking play above.
