I've written about how I balance my real life and online life on the blog before, as well as how to have a healthy relationship with social media , but because this is such a big topic that so many people struggle with today, I wanted to bring it to the Joyous Health Podcast!
This week we're talking about how you can have a healthy relationship with social media based on things I've learned while growing my business on social media. You'll learn more about how I've come to manage negative comments, how I create boundaries around social media and my personal life and ultimately, how I maintain a healthy relationship with social media!

I've gotten into this routine of being more vulnerable online. I post "weekly recaps" in my stories, highlighting my ups and downs from the week. I also put "food for thought" into my captionsReply
That's awesome, I'm sure your community will appreciate your authenticity :)
