THE MAIN ROOM

Part of the London's BIG READ Female Empowerment series of talks.

Do you ever obsess about your body? Do you lie awake at night, fretting about the state of your career

Does everyone else's life seem better than yours? Does it feel as if you'll never be good enough


Why Social Media is Ruining Your Life tackles head on the pressure cooker of comparison and unreachable levels of perfection that social media has created in our modern world.

Meet the author of this book, Katherine Ormerod who will discuss her journey writing this book and the experts she met involved in curating, building and combating the most addictive digital force humankind has ever created. From global influencers - who collectively have over 10 million followers - to clinical psychologists, plastic surgeons and professors, Katherine uncovers how our relationship with social media has rewired our behavioural patterns, destroyed our confidence and shattered our attention spans.

Why Social Media is Ruining Your Life is a rallying cry that will provide you with the knowledge, tactics and weaponry you need to find a more healthy way to consume social media and reclaim your happiness
