Stacey also added a caption of her own, writing: "Good morning everyone. Last Saturday I put my phone in a drawer for the day, turned off the news and it was so good for my mental health, so I'm going to do the same today. Tag a friend who needs a day away from social media and the news… I nominate @mrshinchhome, we FaceTime every day and I know you could do with the day away. Sending you all loads and loads of love."
