Episode 140: Why I Am Leaving Facebook & Instagram

Hanging with a friend in the backyard.

Cooking dinner. 

Relaxing with my husband. 

Driving to pick up food and sitting at the traffic light.

During a conference call with a colleague. 

Countless times throughout the day when I’m feeling uninspired, vigilant, or bored. 

These are just a few of the times social media has infiltrated my life in the past few days. 

Social media continually takes me away from the experiences and relationships I really value—over and over again. 

The thing about social media is that it’s supposed to make you feel more connected to people you care about… but ends up taking you away from the moments you spend with them.

That’s why I’m leaving social media. 

Listen to the full episode to hear:

  • The thought process that went behind leaving social media for good
  • 3 main reasons why I wanted to stay on social media (and what I realized)
  • The 2 rules I used to be more intentional and thoughtful about my decision to leave 


Working with me using my Coach in Your Pocket is perfect for those spiraling up lessons. You have done therapy, you have learned your triggers, examined your past you know you are Spiraling up but your Monger and High Functioning Anxiety are still running the show. Helping people with High Functioning Anxiety is a personal mission for me. I have a special place in my heart for this struggle because it’s both something I dealt with unknowingly for years, and because it silently affects so many people who think this is just how it is. 

But this isn’t how it is.  

There is hope if you struggle with High Functioning Anxiety—it doesn’t have to be this way. You can reduce your anxiety and keep your edge. You can have less self-doubt and still get a ton done. 

Working with me this way is an incredibly efficient and effective way to deal with your anxiety in the moment–without waiting for your next appointment.

I have been doing this work for over 20 years and Coach in Your Pocket is the most effective and most life-changing work I have ever done. My clients are consistently blown away by how these daily check-ins combined with the monthly face-to-face video meetings create slow, lasting changes that reprogram their High Functioning Anxiety tendencies over time.

Over the course of the three-month program, we meet once a month for a face-to-face session via a secure video chat, and then throughout the entire three months, you have access to me anytime you are feeling anxious, having a Monger attack, celebrating a win, or just need to check-in, and I will respond to you during my office hours (Monday through Friday, 9 am – 6 pm EST).
