12 thoughts on “5 Things I’ve Learned From My Social Media Detox

    1. Hi there, Janice, so wild, isn’t it about how tiring social media can be? I thought it was just me. Thanks for taking the time to stop by and comment.

  1. Great post Lisa! I do a retreat day once a month on my day off to combat the draining effects of being plugged in all the time. No email, no social media, no phone & no talking! Just the things that fill me up are on the agenda. Walking up with no alarm, a soak in the tub, Yoga & Meditation, reading, listening to inspiring talks & studying anything I haven’t had time to that I want to dive into.
    So happy you gave yourself permission to detox ❤

    1. Nyk,
      Oh, I love that idea of a day off and to have a personal retreat like that. That is such a great idea! I think many will resonate with that! 🙂 Your retreat sounds divine. Thanks for stopping by to check out my post and leave your wisdom here with us, my lovely! xoxo

  2. Yes! I took a 5 day trip to Aruba in May and was so happy that I decided not to worry about “getting online” and I had such a lovely trip! I told myself that I’d have more of these types of “vacations” going forward! I felt so relaxing, no pressure to respond to anybody, and as someone who takes a lot of photos, I didn’t even take that many. I enjoyed the present moment and I can’t say enough how beneficial that was for my body, mind, and soul!! 🙂

    1. Hi there, Lakesha,
      That’s so awesome! How divine to be in such a beautiful place like Aruba and honor your spirit so wonderfully! That bit about being present…ahh, so needed! Lately, I call my meditations “presence-ing” ’cause I have forgotten how to be present in my body at times. Thanks for the reminder! Much love to you! xoxo

  3. Hi Lisa: I have definitely taken a step back from social media. I step away completely on weekends and I would like to take a total leave – at least for awhile. I find it exhausting and I am nowhere near the active participant that others are.The only thing I miss is “chatting” with some of the really good people who I only know through social media.

    I am baffled by the number of people who appear to be on some platform or another 24/7. I really hate getting marketing pitches sent to me through email on weekends.. I want to shout, Shut it down. Good for you, Lisa, for recognizing what’s really valuable – your own good health.

    1. Cathy, that’s a great idea to take a step down on the weekends. I need to do that too! I used to, but really was sidetracked for a while there. I miss the fun people too when I take breaks. I also hear you about some on social media who appear to be on 24/7. Oh, goodness, right? I think some have hired interns or assistants to do it possibly? I get tons of marketing stuff on the weekend too and have similar thoughts. Thanks for stopping by 🙂 xoxo

    1. Oh, yes, I feel you on that one too. I’m still sorting through my emotions about the quality vs. quantity bit. 🙂 Let me know how yours goes.
