EP 13: 5 Lessons Learned After Leaving Social Media


How many times do you pick up your phone in a day? 

On November 1st I deleted all social media apps from my phone. Gone. As I shared last week in episode 11, I chose to take a 2 week social media fast… and let me tell you, I learned a lot… and I’m sharing those lessons with you today. So much good stuff! 

In this episode, I share 5 lessons I learned from taking time away from social media and spending more quality time with myself. I believe when we experience new things, it’s the perfect time to give yourself permission to get curious. And like all the best lessons, what I learned about my brain, behavior, and myself has helped me change my habits moving forward when it comes to social media. Let’s dive in!
