Some Space

Take a breather.

Social media can be an intense place, so to combat any distressing feelings or bad vibes, we’ve complied a list of resources, activities, and feel-good stuff as a distraction ♥

Mental Health Resources

NHS Self-help:

Sexual Violence Support:

These are the resources and charities listed in the article this page is linked to, but this time you won’t have to scroll past any potentially triggering content.

Calming Distractions

  • Explore – all kinds of livestreams, with plenty of cute animals and soothing landscapes (including the northern lights!)
  • 100,000 Stars – take a trip through the universe.
  • A Soft Murmur – calming ambient sounds.

Cheer yourself up

Great Time Wasters

Some less calming, potentially more time consuming distractions:

  • The Useless Web -takes you to a random site, often with little to no purpose.
  • Curations – make your own exhibition starring works by any artist you fancy.
  • This is Sand – make piles of colourful sand, very satisfying.
  • Incredibox – make some quick and easy tunes.
  • Geoguessr – this game drops you at a random place on earth, and using only street view, your task is to figure out where you landed.
