Actress and singer Sele­na Gomez, who boasts an impres­sive 429 mil­lion fol­low­ers on Insta­gram, recent­ly opened up about her deci­sion to step away from the social media plat­form four years ago. 

Speak­ing at the 2024 TIME 100 Sum­mit, the 31-year-old star shared that she allowed her team to man­age her account dur­ing her hia­tus, and the break has been “the most reward­ing gift” she’s giv­en herself.

Gomez explained that she felt more present and hap­pi­er after dis­tanc­ing her­self from Insta­gram. Despite being the most-fol­lowed woman on the plat­form, she empha­sized the impor­tance of tak­ing breaks from social media for men­tal health.

“I took four years off of Insta­gram and I let my team post for me,” she said. “I felt like it was the most reward­ing gift I gave myself. I was more present. I was happier.”

While acknowl­edg­ing the ben­e­fits of social media, Gomez admit­ted that she felt “more human” when she com­mu­ni­cat­ed with friends via phone calls rather than just inter­act­ing through posts. “I think it’s impor­tant to take breaks,” she advised.

Gomez has been can­did about her men­tal health strug­gles and the pres­sures of fame, mak­ing her deci­sion to dis­con­nect from Insta­gram all the more relatable.

By shar­ing her per­son­al expe­ri­ences, the star encour­ages oth­ers to pri­or­i­tize their well-being and recon­sid­er their rela­tion­ship with social media.
