On this episode of Redefining Yoga, Aria discusses how society and social media can work against us and create disconnection within ourselves and from others while sharing her own personal experience with limiting social media use and prioritizing basic health fundamentals, including spending time in nature and practicing yoga nidra. Aria also delves into her journey in mental health and naturopathic medicine and explores the topics of people pleasing, trauma, and setting boundaries, and how to navigate these issues on an ongoing basis.
In this episode, you will learn the following:
- Social media can have paradoxical effects, connecting us while also isolating us and causing us to compare our lives to others’ highlight reels. Finding balance and limiting social media use may be needed for our mental health and well-being.
- Understanding oneself is crucial to establishing healthy boundaries and breaking patterns and behaviors learned from upbringing or past traumas. Therapy and ongoing learning can aid in this process.
- Self-worth plays a big role in people-pleasing behavior, which can be addressed by setting and enforcing boundaries and exploring the underlying issues and triggers that contribute to the behavior.
