Social Media Detox with Herbalist Amanda Furbee

Social Media Detox with Herbalist Amanda Furbee

Amanda Furbee

Can you believe that we are halfway through the year! Time does fly! With each month’s goals to push myself, I am learning so much about joy and how to have fun while taking the best care of myself. Self-growth is fun and invigorating. It makes us push through in areas we need change and helps us to blossom to our full potential. Are you loving your personal self-growth challenges? Tell me all about it!

Through the month of July, I did a social media detox on Sundays. This was a lot harder than I thought. I realized that I had such a compulsion to just pick up my phone and scroll. How many of you do this? It was as if I just needed something to occupy my brain space. Then I thought - that isn’t what I wanted to occupy my head space with at all! I had to set multiple reminders throughout the day to continually keep my brain out of Social-Media-Land. 

Here is what I discovered: I need way more time away from social media and phone interaction. Once I finally convinced my brain to stay away, I could emerge more present in my setting with the people I was engaging with. It took me a few weeks to establish those boundaries, but once I did, it felt so good. I want to continue to practice those boundaries so that I can embrace my creativity and always stay connected with the people I am around. I release the anxiety that social media bestows upon us all and open up the pathways for new brain wave links. I do not need social media to be a part of my everyday life and I don’t want that to be my go-to for when I am bored. Like many of us. I crave connection with other individuals and the best way to allow this to happen is to put the phone down and stay focused on whoever is around me. Here is to a new journey of not being so connected to my phone, but being more conscientious of my engagements. 

Beginning in August, I will be diving into Reiki and the energy it allows me to receive with Colleen Shea. She is a local massage and reiki therapist and her work is powerful! Join me in shifting your energy!
