09. How To Have a Healthy Relationship With Social Media

By Joyous Health

Social media: friend or foe? This week we're going beyond the filters and perfectly curated feeds and having an honest conversation about social media, including how to establish a healthy relationship with it. Doing so, will drastically reduce stress and free up more space in your mind.   In this episode we discuss: How Joy responds to "your life and recipes look so perfect" comments What really happens behind the lens of social media Real life VS Online life The amount of work that actually goes into producing a recipe for the blog "Sexy selfies" Why all that glitters is not gold (and why not to compare yourself to others) There's no such thing as an overnight success "Luck is when preparation meets opportunity" How Joy got to where she is today The value of unfollowing people who don't make you feel good How Joy handles negative comments on social media (especially YouTube) Mean comments say more about the more person saying them and nothing about you Negativity breeds negativity (and positivity breeds positivity!) We have the power to shift the narrative based on how we interact on social media platforms Why "killing them with kindness" doesn't always work Creating healthy boundaries with social media and mobile devices How not to let social media consume your life A Public Service Announcement + a story that will stop you from texting and walking across the street How social media platforms are designed to be addictive The unofficial campaign to get Walker to share more of his amazing photography on his Instagram Resources: Sign up for the Dose of Joy newsletter (delivered every Tuesday) Sign up for the What To Eat This Weekend newsletter (delivered every Friday) Find Joy on Instagram Show Notes:
