April 23, 2019

In Episode 63 I sit down with Australian athlete, media personality, podcaster and health advocate Katie Williams to chat about social media and controlling our environment to stay present, live in reality & essentially optimise our life for happiness.

In this episode we cover:

• Katie's experiences with social media
• Pros & Cons of Social Media
• Is social media an addiction?
• Creating boundaries and healthy habits for social media and phone use
• What is reality?
• The idea of controlling your environment including how Katie determines who she follows or unfollows
• Impressionable age groups and social media
• Gratification from real world experiences
• Purpose behind posting & using social media to create positivity
• Periods without social media and the #offline48 concept I heard about through Max La Manna
• and much more

Hope you enjoy this episode friends. Little different to previous ones but so relevant to the world that we find ourselves in.
