    This week, I spent 7 full days without a phone. No mindlessly clicking through stories, no getting stuck for hours on the explore page, no reloading my likes and views and comments every 10 minutes. I had a growing suspicion I had a phone and social media addiction and it was time to quit cold turkey to find out just what life is like without a smartphone.

                              Monica Santos yes! I was going to comment that but saw your comment. While I eat, if alone, or before going to bed I read. Any free time, instead of checking my phone I pick up a book. I would also take up coloring books or watercolors, or puzzles! We are too attached to our phones.

                                                  listen up.

                                                  you are worth it. you are valued and while I'm sure being a youtuber you're always concerned with views or likes because that's your job and you want to be good at your job because you care. Taking time for yourself on a regular basis is not selfish and is going to be so good for your wellbeing and mindset. trust me, ill help you be so much more motivated and expand your creativity. Sometimes we all get caught up in Instagram and spend hours doing absolutely nothing scrolling through, however taking time and doing something that you like such as picking up a hobby again that doesn't have to do with social media and your job will let you subconsciously differentiate yourself from your job. because you're not just a youtuber, your ashley and on top of that, you do youtube and brand deals and whatever else that may be. I'll help you create your own lens through which you see yourself because you're more than the amount of views that you get, rather than how others see you. I know this is so so much easier said than done and I could literally talk for hours about all of this but finding happiness and being comfortable with yourself but I've been working on this myself to grow as a person and it helps so much. I just want to help you be the best version of yourself and honestly, I hope you don't take this the wrong way. you're such an amazing person with honestly the best fashion style out there.
