Lilly Singh To Take A Break From Vlogging To Focus On Mental Health
Our favourite YouTuber Lilly Singh aka “Superwoman” has recently released a video on her channel, announcing a temporary break from work. She says she is going to take some time off from vlogging to prioritize her mental health. It was a shocking announcement for her over 14 million followers.
The popular YouTube comedian and vlogger is taking a break from posting on YouTube, citing the need to focus on her mental health. She said she didn’t know how much time she would be taking off, saying it could probably take one week or one month.
“I am mentally, physically, emotionally and spiritually exhausted,” said Singh, “I’m not my optimal happiness right now. I could be mentally healthier.”
She’s been creating videos consistently for the past eight years. In her video announcing her impending break, she said the pressure of constantly creating ‘viral’ content is overwhelming. “YouTube has changed so much… I don’t really understand it anymore. People have found a way to make it work for them, I am not one of those people,” Lilly said, adding that YouTube is a platform that “demands constant content.”
YouTube “kind of is a machine,” she said. “It makes creators believe that we have to pump out content consistently even at the cost of our life, and our mental health, and our happiness. Because if you don’t, then you’ll become irrelevant.”
She also said that whatever was “working” on YouTube was “not making her happy.” “Straight up, I haven’t been super-happy with a lot of the content I’ve created”.
The 30-year-old Indo-Canadian online star started vlogging way back in 2010. She has been showered with love from all over the world since then. She has appeared in several Hollywood projects, including “Bad Moms,” HBO’s film adaptation of “Fahrenheit 451.” and “Ice Age: Collision Course.”
“I’ll see you soon…”Lily said to her fans, promising that this is in no way a goodbye but just a short intermission.
