Social Media break

Thank you to those of you who are trying us out this week for coming today! We are so happy to those of you who are already members for telling your friends and family about us!

Last week I took a break from social media while spending a few days with family in St. Augustine. These days it's so easy to be glued to your devices and constantly feeling the need to check what everyone else is doing on social media. It probably isn't news to anyone that this can be detrimental to your mental and physical health. Making posts and getting likes gives us instant gratification and releases a burst of dopamine in our brains, but that feeling is very short lived. Fostering meaningful relationships with other people and being part of a community is what gives us a sense of value, and a longer lasting feeling of wellness.

If you find yourself unable to abstain from social media while around other people, try taking a break or limiting the times you look at it (like at 9am and 2pm for example). Suggest to your friends to all put your phones in the center of the table when out to dinner so no one is tempted to check out. You may find that your relationships deepen and your overall sense of well-being improves :)
