Thank you so much for this. About a month ago, I just stopped Instagram. It wasn’t a big principled moment, I just realized that I actually didn’t have to do any of my life online. I have been thinking about how and if I want to re-engage and this thoughtful piece was very helpful 🧡

I’m very grateful to hear that someone in the wellness space is asking these questions. I found myself stepping back from the modern wellness culture a few years ago, because it was making me feel guilty that I was struggling financially. And a lot of the offerings by the wellness community were cost prohibitive for me, which seemed so wrong.

There are so many systemic issues that I see everyday, and often it feels very heavy. I can try to maintain my mental and spiritual health but unless there are community oriented solutions it feels like I’m just putting on blinders. We talk a lot about self-care but minimize the effects of society on our physical, mental and spiritual health.

I have so many more thoughts on this, but mostly just a wanted to say thanks for sharing this writing and challenging yourself.

I also got caught up in this world during the pandemic, called myself a coach, and left my artist self in the dust. It feels so good to emerge from this bubble of thinking and it is satisfying and releiving to hear others coming to the same realizations. I've completely quit the wellness IG world and am focused on being a good person in my real life, working with my partner towards our goals, and cultivating my writing. I finally feel back to myself. I'm grateful for the helpful tools and cautionary lessons I learned in this process. Thank you so much for sharing.
