Take a Social Media Break With Me!

Gasp! Say what? Jae stop playing with me! I know, it sounds crazy right? I mean, if you must be technical, I'm not 110% unplugged because I'm writing this blog. 😝 I have stayed away from Facebook and Instagram for a couple days now, and I must say, I feel fantastic!

Of course I get a little curious when I get super bored, but for the most part, they have both been off limits! Social Media changes you, no matter what you think, it does. I didn't like the mental state I was falling into by being so tuned into Social Media almost every waking moment.

You shouldn't be that plugged in, it's really not healthy. I know it may sound crazy coming from me who wants nothing more than to have a nice, thriving career in Social Media and Blogging, but you have to know when to take a break.

One of the biggest benefits I am happy with taking the much needed break is that my writing is thriving. I'm currently churning out book 4 in my zombie series and I couldn't be happier. I still don't outline, but I am making it work for me. There's a method to my madness. Ok, not really, but my writing workflow is a lot better.

Do you take regular breaks from Social Media? Do you schedule a certain time of day, or do you plan an extended break from Social Media? How do you unplug?

Vlog Magick v.6: My Growing Walgreen's Addiction

Hey, lovelies! It's been a while. May is still Mental Health Awareness month, so I'm exercising working on myself this month. It's especially important to me because I'm getting a year older in my dirty thirty's. It's both bittersweet and eye opening. I'm finding my depths this month, more so than I have ever been tried in all my 31 years. I'm finding a strength I didn't know I had in myself, and it's growing everyday. I still have many obstacles to overcome, but day by day, a girl is kicking the ass of all the negativity coming my way. I just keep reminding myself and telling myself that this season is almost over. I'm still winning in my own special way. Lovelies, what ways are you taking care of yourself this month?

Adulting: Mental Health Awareness Month

I didn't realize my birth month is #MentalHealthAwarenessMonth. Funny how the first day of the month I have a complete mental breakdown. I'm fine now. Actually the next day I was doing much better.

I knew that transitioning my blog from my budding writing career to a lifestyle blog would be an interesting transition. I am usually secretive and tend to keep my feelings to myself. I knew that somewhere there would be an enemy or foe scowling at my posts, or making jokes at my expense. Which is fine, it comes with the territory. I don't do this for you, I do this for the lone girl that's out there like me. For the person who thinks they are the only one who suffers. I'm open because I'm strong enough to be open. I'm open about my PCOS and the facial hair that comes with it, because I'm inspired by those women who were brave enough to share their experiences.

I'm experiencing what I'm coining 'Environmental Sadness'. My surroundings are mak…
