THE POWER OF SOCIAL MEDIA & TAKING TIME TO UNPLUG

Let me start by sharing a couple of recent Facebook post...

FLOAT SPA
SATURDAY, MAY 7:
Have you ever heard of a float spa before?
1,000 pounds of Epsom salt in this little clam like pod. So much salt that your body is floating as the salt pulls out all the toxins in your body.
An hour of nothing put floating.
I've never done it before but I'm headed to my first float spa now! Then a hair blow out. Manicure. And massage. Happy Mothers Day to me! Thank you Jayson. Super excited for a relaxing day, especially the float spa. Has anyone tried it out before? What was your experience?
SATURDAY, MAY 14:
Okay I know I'm going to sound like a crazy person, but I need to share what's been going on. I woke up this morning with a strong impression to share so I'm praying someone who reads this can help me!
Last Saturday I went to a float spa. It was amazing and I felt so relaxed and rejuvenated! I stayed in their meditation room for awhile soaking up the good feelings cuz I felt amazing.
I walked out the door and it went downhill, so downhill.
I had a haircut where the lady went way shorter than I wanted. I proceeded after that to have the WORST manicure I've ever had in my LIFE.
That night I had the craziest nightmares and woke up in the worst pain I have felt in a long time. Pain in the middle of my back, a place I've never been sore before. So much pain and tightness to where I couldn't go to church.
Bad dreams all this past week. My body has been in so much pain I haven't been able to do my hard core workouts. I've forced myself to do yoga everyday but even that has been painful! I feel tired, it's been hard for me to focus, brain fog, indigestion issues. And my skin! Grrrrr.
My skin was doing so good for the last couple months, increasingly better and better! Nothing done differently - and I'm breaking out like crazy! My skin does NOT look good right now. And I had been doing okay with my lash extensions and my lashes are totally falling out too! The whole lash, not just the extension.
I can't count how many times I have cried this last week, my energy and vibe is just off. Some days I have barely any appetite and rarely eat. And other days I want to eat candy and chocolate all day long.
The pain, the skin breakouts, the bad dreams...... Something is not right! I'm not PMS'ing. And it's just this past week, ever since the float spa. I don't feel like myself!
SOCIAL MEDIA IS SUCH A POWERFUL TOOL FOR LIFE & BUSINESS.
I know there's so much going on in my life right now that is GOOD and I'm so so grateful. I'm not sharing this with the intent to complain and focus on the bad. So I sincerely apologize if this post brings you down. I probably sound like a crazy person. 🙈
I just want to feel better. I've done everything I know of to pull out of this funk. I know I have a lot of friends who know more about energy than me, and it seemed a couple of you had done float spas before so perhaps someone has some insight?
Please send me a private message if you have an ideas on what happened and what I can do. Suggestions, ideas.
I was in such a good place, doing so good. I want that back.

 

Can I just take a moment to say how amazing the online community is? So many lessons the last 36 hours since my post Saturday morning. Last night and this morning there have been a WAVE of AHA moments and breakthroughs. I can't wait to share some insights and respond to the heartfelt messages I received. In the meantime check out the amazingly helpful comments I received.

So helpful!

I took Sunday to unplug, As I often do. It's been really really nice to be unplugged on the weekends.

TAKE TIME TO UNPLUG

TAKE TIME TO UNPLUG

Everyone is different. For ME, over the last four years of sharing my life online and building a business through social media I've learned it's good for my sanity to have time offline each weekend. It keeps me balanced. Keeps things in perspective.

Don't get me wrong, I love social media. I've built a business through social media, and met some of my best friends online!

I even dare to say we have an obligation to share what we are learning and experiencing with others. Our experiences don't have to JUST be for OUR benefit, but for others benefit as well; if we allow it. Social media is a powerful way to do just that.

But it's good to be in the moment. Mentally present.

It's good for me to create space to free my mind from thinking "What's a good way to share this moment online?"

Because I spend minimal time plugged in on the weekends, I've been able to show up STRONG for my team and customers week after week, year after year. I stay EXCITED to share my life the rest of the week.

Social media connections can be pretty cool. Connecting to LIFE in the moment can be pretty cool too. Win Win!
