116. Social media consuming your life? Surprising benefits of taking a social media break and why you should do it! // Sandy Cooper

Ever feel like you are wasting time on social media? How about the negative effects on your mental wellbeing? Today I invited Sandy, my friend to come and talk to you about the benefits of taking a social media break. 
In this episode you will learn:

  • What is the biggest problem with social media today
  • What are the negative effects of social media on your mental and emotional wellbeing (especially as a mom)
  • How you can take a small break starting today (even if you feel addicted)

Sandy is so wise and knowledgable on this topic. Our conversation was so fun, especially that it was recorded in person :) Yes, Sandy came over to my house.
