Social media: friend or foe? This week we're going beyond the filters and perfectly curated feeds and having an honest conversation about social media, including how to establish a healthy relationship with it. Doing so, will drastically reduce stress and free up more space in your mind.

  • What really happens behind the lens of social media
  • Real life VS Online life
  • The amount of work that actually goes into producing a recipe for the blog

  • "Luck is when preparation meets opportunity"
  • How Joy got to where she is today
  • The value of unfollowing people who don't make you feel good
  • How Joy handles negative comments on social media (especially YouTube)
