Bella Hadid Really Wishes She Wasn't On Social Media

The model reveals that Instagram has a negative impact on her health

Bella Hadid wishes she wasn't on social media, but remains on Instagram and Twitter for the sake of her job.

"I would really rather be off social media than on it," she told W magazine. "Especially these days; it makes me so crazy. When I take a couple days off social media it makes me so happy. In fact, I recently made this decision consciously, it just like sparked, that I no longer check my phone when I wake up."

"I think that's why sometimes you get off to a bad start in the morning, when you start your day with that energy," she adds. "Like who wants to turn on their phone at 7 a.m. or whatever and see something negative about themselves?"

The model - who was over 12 million Instagram followers - explained that she has to deal with trolling on a regular basis, and has learnt to ignore them as much as possible.

"It's hard," she said. "Everybody goes through it. It's really hard to have people watching you all the time. But that's the exact reason why I try to not look at it. Because I'm the only one actually paying my bills, right?"
