It turns out, this is a good thing and might just help keep me alive into my 30s after the news that a staggering 259 people have died taking "extreme selfies" between 2011 and 2017 according to a global study.
They found that selfie-related deaths are most common in India, Russia the United States and Pakistan and 72.5% of those reported are men.
According to Mashable, drowning (70 deaths) and falling (48 deaths) were the top contributors to the selfie mortality rate.
"The selfie deaths have become a major public health problem", Dr Agam Bansal, the study's lead author, toldThe Washington Post.
"Selfies are themselves not harmful, but the human behavior that accompanies selfies is unsafe".
The highest number of deaths and deadly selfie incidents occurred among those in the 10-19 and 20-29 age groups, with the median age of 23.
One reason for India having so many selfie-related deaths is that the country is home to the largest population of people ages 30 years or younger. Risky behaviour caused more deaths and incidents due to selfies than non-risky behaviour.

Researchers advise the creation of "no-selfie" zones at high-risk areas including bodies of water, mountain peaks and tall buildings. Drowning was the most common cause of death, such as when someone got washed away by waves on a beach or when a boat capsized while the person tried to take a selfie. Other deaths involved animals, electrocution and guns. "Selfies are themselves not harmful, but the human behavior that accompanies selfies is risky".
There were three reported in 2011, two in 2013, 13 in 2014, 50 in 2015, and 98 and 93, respectively, in 2016 and 2017. Researchers cross-matched a list of web links of various countries' English newspapers and the web link addresses of the news from Google search results.
