I’ve been on Instagram since 2010. My relationship with it has evolved so much over the last 11 years. Especially in the last year during lockdown. It’s gone from being my window to the world, to a place of comparison and despair, to inspiration and connection, and now onto more of a ‘meh’ kind of feeling to it. I just don’t feel like sharing much on it at the moment. I was reflecting on why this is the case and this is what came to mind:
Perhaps this is just a phase and I’ll feel differently in a few months time- we will see, but for now, I’ve just completed some excellent LinkedIn training with Jen Taylor and a brilliant 5 day challenge by Celia Rizothanasi so watch out, as I’ll be on LinkedIn more! I still plan to post onto Instagram, but with less intensity, and less focus on ‘keeping the algorithm happy’.
Life is too short to worry about if I should post on the weekend or not, or if people have unfollowed me or not.
Let me know what you think? Do you spend time on Instagram? Perhaps you love it? Do feel free to share!

It was the deep inner work I did which started with getting really familiar with my core values that helped me switch up my mindset around Instagram. I’ve now put the format I use with my 1:1 clients together in a workbook as I think it’s such important work.
