Cody Simpson reveals that he has DELETED all his social networks

Cody Simpson DELETED all of his social media to focus on his Olympic swimming dreams because being online for hours a day was ‘taking a toll on his emotional well-being’

Cody Simpson takes his swimming career so seriously that he has deleted all of his social media from his phone.

The 25-year-old pop star realized she was spending hours every day online and needed to kick the habit.

‘I used to get six hours into this or that and be like ‘oh shit, this is no good’. I had to make a change,’ he said The daily telegraph on Saturday.

‘It actually feels really good. I just don’t want to get caught up in what 600 other people do on a daily basis. Or read things that are negative for one, but also positive,’ she continued.

Cody says that “you can get pretty caught up” when it comes to social media, and “it would affect my emotional well-being.”

His accounts, like his Instagram, remain active, but Cody says he no longer has any of the apps on his phone.

The star is training hard for the upcoming 2022 Australian Swimming Championships in hopes of representing Australia at the Commonwealth Games later this year.

He is also training hard in a bid to qualify for the 2024 Paris Olympics.

Cody told The Project on Friday night that the switch from touring the world and clubbing with A-listers required some adjustments.

‘The lifestyle change for me has been polarizing. It’s been a drastic change from where I come from to what I’m doing now,” she said.

‘But I grew up in the sport and I grew up with a swimming family. And the parents are both competitive swimmers. So I was born into it and did it for years growing up,” he continued.

‘And then when I went to the States and had the last 10 years in music, I had a crazy life. I really enjoy it and it’s a nice change for me based on where I come from.’

Cody said he was “concerned about the reception” he would get from other swimmers, but says he has been welcomed with open arms and is getting a lot of support.
