Self Care

Are you feeling burnt out? You might need a social media detox.

2021 hasn’t been an easy year and I am realizing that Social Media keeps me farther and farther away from myself. It isn’t fair to my creative projects, my mental or physical health, and overall it feels like a downright addiction.

This December, join me in a “Slow the Scroll” social cleanse – where I share my journey that feels much more supportive and unplugged than the life I have been living.

This is for you if:

  • You feel like you are constantly needing to “check” something
  • You haven’t created anything for yourself in a long time
  • You miss the days of living and creating *just for you*
  • You want to spend more time reading and relaxing, not comparing to others

I crave things to feel like 1997 again, where things were analog and my main distraction was a Lion King video game.

Are you ready to join me in Slow the Scroll December? It’s time for social media detox!

Here are some journal prompts for you:

  • My intention for this cleanse:
  • Things I want to move away from:
  • Things I can do instead: (for work or personal life)
  • Game plan for interacting with socials:
