    #11 Nicole Ashley | Social media anxiety - roadblock or motivator?

    Today's episode, with our host Nadia Meli and Canadian wedding and portrait photographer — Nicole Ashley, is strong proof that there's still room to discuss social media anxiety and its impact on creative work. Even though there's a general understanding of the pitfalls of social media on mental health, Nicole's perspective on the topic brings new layers of clarity. We all know the negative ways it can affect us, yet how many dig deeper and change something in their behavior? How do we control it instead of letting it control us? Is there a way to channel the anxiety into a good force that can push us forward? Tune in to find the answers to these questions!
