JHP09: How To Have A Healthy Relationship With Social Media

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!

Listen to the episode

In this episode we discuss:

  • How I respond 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" and my shift away from them
  • 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 I got to where I am today 
  • The value of unfollowing people who don't make you feel good
  • How I handle 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

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 captions
