Still, Turner stated social media continues to make her “incredibly anxious,” which is why she tries to “distance” herself from it — going so far as to delete the Instagram app from her cellphone.
“Having it off my phone has been so helpful. Now, if I do have to go on it, it’s for a few minutes once or twice a week, rather than hours every day. It’s made such a difference. Live real life — it’s much more fun.”
