Or can you use platforms like Instagram Intentionally?
I wrote an article on Mindbodygreen.com about it, and offered some tips on how to use the platform without feeling terrible about yourself, or losing an entire afternoon to it. Head over there to read all about it, then tell me:
Are you feeling the same way? How do you use Instagram, or any social media, more intentionally?
