Lacey Johnson has come to the conclusion that it’s not the Digital Age or social media that has become a problem in today’s society, but rather it’s the user error stemming from our relationship with it and the intention behind how we use it to connect. Lacey is an award-winning essayist, editor and journalist. With a deep intrigue for human beings, and a fiery passion for smacking her readers in the face with life-unlocking truths, she writes and reports boldly and introspectively about topics that challenge the status quo—in the realms of fulfilling relationships, mental health, popular culture, women’s issues and the nuances of self-optimization.
In this episode, we discuss:
How social media has contributed to higher suicide rates
The importance of seeing past the staged posts, and staying authentic on social media
Why we need to be aware of how the content we consume affects our mood and mental health
And the challenge parents are facing raising kids and how to support them while they discover who they are… not who anyone else wants them to be.
