58| Sandy Cooper: Is Social Media Stealing Your Time & Emotional Wellness? Why You Might Want To Take A Short Break
Have you ever tracked how much time you spend on a social media platform and/or how you feel afterwards?
Have you ever got sucked into a continual scrolling?
Perhaps you read a post or comment that was very divisive and made you angry. Now you can’t even talk to that person.
Social media like Facebook, Instagram and Twitter have had a dramatic impact on our society, and many are rethinking how much time they want to spend on their devices. Especially now as we head into elections and the holiday season.
I want to help you thrive emotionally, relationally, spiritually and physically. In doing so, we need to be intentional and address anything that might have a control over us. (John 10:10, 3John1:2, Romans 12:2)
In today's episode, my new friend and guest, Sandy Cooper, discuss the reasons why she needed to take a break from social media, and how she now helps others reclaim their freedom and life by reducing the amount of time on various platforms.
Sandy is the podcast host of The Balanced MomCast, a blogger at thescooponbalance.com, and author. Today she discusses how after many years of building a successful business on social media platforms, she one day realized how controlled she was by her phone, and her mental and emotional health were negatively impacted.
Sandy helps other overwhelmed moms and entrepreneurs take short and longer breaks from social media to reclaim their time and life.
Social media is intentionally designed to be like a drug, to get you hooked by giving your brain a dopamine fix. While we might think we are connected to more people around the world, research is showing that people feel more disconnected, isolated, anxious and depressed.
Beginning November 1st, she is offering a 7-Day Challenge to help moms break the addictive cycle of social media, reassess their relationship with it, and reclaim the time they lose to these platforms.
