Hey there! It’s Jackie back with another blog post. This morning, I was reading about Selena Gomez’s latest project: Wondermind. From my research, it seems to be a free newsletter you can sign up for that provides things like mental health tips. According to the website, “with honest conversations and expert advice, this is your roadmap for overcoming stigma, shifting your mindset, and feeling supported.”
While I was reading more about her interview with Good Morning America, Selena Gomez said she does something I don’t think most of us could do: stay off the internet. She said that she has been off the internet for OVER FOUR YEARS!
It seems to have really improved her life! She said, “I am happier, I am more present, I connect more with people. I understand how powerful the Internet is, and in so many ways it’s done the best things for the world. But for me, I get to my news that is actually important I get through people in my life.” As for how she posts online, her assistants do that for her.
Can you imagine? Staying off the internet for years would be a STRUGGLE for me. However, I see her point. It sometimes feels like social media allows people to constantly watch a judge your life. Especially for someone with millions of followers, I’m sure it can’t be easy. I might sign up for this newsletter just to see what it’s all about. Can’t hurt, right?
