About social drain

I’m not a big social media person.

In the past, I’ve had a Facebook and LinkedIn profile but I barely used them. An odd like or share here and there was the most you’d see from me. I think I didn’t actively use my Facebook for nearly 5 years. Except to thank people for sending birthday wishes, usually a month after the fact 😆

Don’t get me wrong, social media is an amazing tool. It allows us to connect with people we would never meet in real life. And it allows us to be visible with our work internationally in ways that weren’t possible before. Some people love interacting in that space (introverts and extroverts alike!).

For others, like me, spending lots of time on social media can be draining.

In this week’s podcast episode, I share how I discovered by accident that social media was one of the biggest energy drains in my life and how my social media behavior has changed to respect my own energy needs.

In this episode you’ll learn:

✔️ What social media drain is and why it can be difficult to recognize

✔️ Why it’s important to set boundaries around social media behavior

✔️ How I balance connecting on social with my energy as someone who isn’t a big social media person

Things that are a “normal part of life”, the way social media is these days, but that turn out to drain your energy can be difficult to recognize.

It can also be challenging to create healthy habits around it that allow you to still take advantage of all the positive sides but without being exhausting in the long run.

If you often feel tired but you can’t quite put your finger on why, then comment below or send me a private message with the word “energy” and I’ll help identify your biggest energy drain right now.
