I'm Emily — a resourceful mom but, if I'm being honest, a terrible prepper. It wasn't until I realized that...

Meet Emily

I’m inviting you to join me for a slower, more peace-filled season with a social media sabbatical- as in, quitting social media for the next month or so. 

I logged off my platforms on November 8 and plan to take a two-month digital rest. 

In this episode, I’m sharing 10 reasons (technically 11 reasons, I couldn’t help myself- there are so many good ones!) to quit social media – or to at least take a break. 

I started the year off with a social media sabbatical but still batched my posts once a week. This time, I’m going unplugged- I even removed email from my phone. Tune in to hear the biggest reasons why and what I hope to gain from the break. 

I mention a lot of previous episodes and interviews on this topic, which I’ll link below. If you like this episode, you’ll love some of those!
