Even before this pandemic, social media could be a source of frustration and stress. I’ve had my own social media struggles but also know these unique platforms can create joyful experiences, especially for business owners looking for a way to feel more connected to their clients.

I’m excited to share how meditation has impacted my approach to social media, my framework for navigating social media in a more mindful way, and simple actions to help ease the overwhelm and find joy in social media again!

In this podcast episode, I share:

  • Positive and negative aspects of using social media as a business owner
  • My experience of learning how to meditate with the Headspace app
  • The benefits of a no-notification strategy and how to make it work for you
  • Suggestions for approaching social media in a mindful way
  • The power of approaching social media with more compassion
  • Details about my new series “Social Media Unwind”

Memorable Quotes:

  • “We’re all self-isolating because of coronavirus… there’s almost a collective anxiety we can feel online.”
  • “After I started meditating, I was able to regulate my emotions around social media, how I approached my business and my life, and things just got better from there…”
  • “I missed a few messages and I found out it was OKAY.”
  • “If you set yourself an intention for what you want to do with social media, the more likely you are to get it because you’re able to name it.”
  • “Wrap everything in compassion…imagine a giant virtual hug you want to give to everybody.”
