Moving forward, consciously consume

Hussain gave some tips on how to have a healthier relationship with social media – since staying away from it entirely seems nearly impossible today. Being conscious and selective about what you follow and how it impacts you is important, she says. “Find people or accounts that inspire, motivate, and uplift you.

What are you saying about yourself? How does it make you view yourself? Does this bring you fulfillment?”
