#53: In this episode, I share the importance of deleting your Instagram app every once in a while, ultimately to gain more clarity in your personal and professional life! Trust me, the results will be enlightening. I’ve done this a couple of times now for a few days at a time and it felt so freeing. I found that I was way more productive—I didn’t have the app’s notifications distracting me and pulling me away from my work, and I wasn’t wasting time comparing myself to others online. This is your sign to try deleting IG from your phone, even if it’s just for a day or two as an experiment. Here are some of the things that I get into: 

– Balancing what brings me joy and what brings me revenue for my business—and why Instagram is just not it.

– How I wasn’t comparing myself and my business to others—I was just blogging away, creating quality content for my site (that I know is going to rank on Google and bring my revenue because of my SEO strategies), and was focused on myself and my biz, which felt so much healthier.

– An audio clip from Six-Figure SEO student Sarah where she talks about how she was so depressed by her reach on Instagram that it was actually affecting her mental health and making it hard for her to enjoy an epic Mediterranean cruise travel partnership she was on—and how she decided to focus less on IG and more on her website for her mental health.

– How Instagram users who engage in digital status seeking (looking for popularity online) and social comparison have been linked to increases in depressive symptoms, social anxiety, and body image concerns, as well as decreases in self-esteem.

With this all being said, listen to the episode, give it a try, and let me know how it goes. I promise it’ll be refreshing af!
