Why I've Been Away From Social Media.....



A few months ago I started to feel like my body was shutting down. My skin was constantly breaking out, I had no energy, I was gaining weight, and just feeling awful constantly.  Because of everything, I was feeling pretty depressed and my anxiety was at an all-time high. I stopped posting photos on Instagram because I thought it was wrong to post a photo where I look so happy but in reality felt so crappy.

I knew I had to make a few changes:

- social media detox. I deleted all my apps off my phone, Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat and Facebook. I was no longer aimlessly scrolling and feeling bad that I didn't have any content to post. This also let me figure out what I truly wanted out of social media. Did I want to have an account just for fun and not really care? Or do I want to make this a business? If you were wondering, I came to the conclusion that I really want to make this a business and inspire the people who follow me. I'm hoping people leave my page, blog etc feeling happier than they arrived. Even if it's just a few people that are influenced that will make it worthwhile.

- working out. Pretty simple but I completely fell off my workout routine. I had no energy that I couldn't even make it to the gym, it was a real problem. I love working out and it makes me really happy so I've made a commitment to go 3-4 times a week no matter what. Getting to the gym is really the hardest part. I have never regretted a workout.

- skin. Diet is a huge factor when it comes to skin but I will talk about that below. The biggest advice I can give you is to figure out what your skin type is. I thought I was oily my entire life but I'm actually combination and yes those are different.  Now research products; I go on Sephora and read almost every review before I make a purchase.  And sometimes those products don't work out for me but that's ok! At least I'm narrowing what works and what doesn't.

- diet. Ok, everyone is going to gasp when they read this. My entire life I have avoided vegetables and fruit. I'm a very picky eater and have gotten away with eating what I've wanted thus far. Maybe turning 28 last year was the game changer but I felt AWFUL. I think I texted my Mom a few times telling her I was dying, yes I'm dramatic. I began cooking all my meals so I could control what goes in them and figure out what my body wants. I have found out my body LOVES protein and cannot function without. My body also needs a good combination of fruit and vegetables.  If I can't eat enough of fruit/veg I will make a smoothie to make it easier (no milk just water added). My skin has also never been better by this diet change which I'm definitely happy about! I know it seems like this was such a simple change but I was legit eating burritos and pizza every night, I'm proud of myself! And I have become such a good little chef (toot my own horn heh).

If anyone is feeling the way I did maybe its time to take a detox and really focus on what the main issue is. I always suggest writing things down so you can see clearly what's going on. I think I hit a point where change was so needed that it was easy to make those adjustments. I can't promise everyone will have an easy time making changes but I can promise it will be so so worth it.

I'm happy to report that I finally feel healthy.

  10. This, as you can envision, spares a great deal of time. Be alerts, in any case, and guarantee social locales fit to the business, for example, bookmarking destinations for online retailers, show up similarly as you need them to be found. best smm panel

  13. If you should be newbie, find your way. If you should be a sporadic user who deems LinkedIn as hard labor, you then will neglect to see its value. Don't make excuses. Do what it requires to be able to achieve a confident outcome. With daily utilization of LinkedIn comes greater agility on the site, a deeper knowledge of its nuances, and enhanced recognition of real-world opportunity.
