“I'm taking a break from social media for my mental health because I find Instagram and Twitter to be overstimulating, to be overwhelming,” Holland said.

Holland said "I get caught up and I spiral when I read things about me online and ultimately it's very detrimental to my mental state, so I decided to take a step back and delete the app.”
