Zendaya Reveals Why Social Media Makes Her ‘Anxious’

The Emmy award-winning actress said she takes time off posting when too overwhelmed, "If I think too much about it, I'm not gonna do it."

The 25-year-old Dune star recently opened up about her relationship with social media. Zendaya said taking time away from posting on Twitter and Instagram helps her keep her mental health in check because she can get easily anxious or ‘overthink’ things when she spends too much time online.

“I was always a shy kid. I would find being on social media would kind of make me anxious, or I would start to overthink a little too much,” she told People In 10 for their Brave Together series. Zendaya also said that her fans understand because “they want me to be happy and exist beyond social media.”

Meanwhile, the Euphoria star earlier said that her decision to take a break from social media earlier this year has helped her stop feeling so ‘overwhelmed.’ She said, “I haven’t been posting, and my fans probably hate it, which I understand. But I get too overwhelmed with having to post things, and if I think too much about it, I’m not gonna do it. It’s not worth it.” However, despite 100 million followers on Instagram, Zendaya is determined to simply do what she loves, rather than giving in to the pressure and expectations of her fans. She further added, “I’d rather do what I love and then post when I have a project to promote.”
