Tom Holland reveals reason he is taking a break from social media

Several days ago, Tom Holland stated that he is taking a break from social media to focus on his mental health.

Now, he has briefly returned to Instagram to address his absence in more detail, and to highlight two charities that he supports.

In the video, Tom sheds some light on his struggles with mental health:

"I have taken a break from social media for my mental health because I find Instagram and Twitter to be overstimulating, to be overwhelming."

"I get caught up and I spiral when I read things about me online. And ultimately, it’s very detrimental to my mental state."

He starts the almost 3-minute-long video by sharing that he has been struggling to record his message for his 67 million followers on Instagram.

He also mentioned that he deleted the apps during his break. Checking his social media accounts, he last posted on Instagram six weeks ago and last tweeted in February 2022.
