Social media and the Internet can be an exhausting place. If I spend too long scrolling, I’m left feeling drained, empty, and oftentimes… jealous. I catch myself comparing myself to other people, and it’s hard to stop. That’s why it’s so important to interrupt that endless web surfing with some inspiring content.
But what should you look for in an inspiring blog?
I try to ask myself these 3 questions:
- Is the content adding something to my life?
- Does it match my lifestyle?
- When I scroll through their feed, does it make me a happier, better person?
Hopefully, Ditch the Clique answers YES to all these questions by providing you with inspiring and empowering resources! But we know that you’re going to look in other places to find even more inspiration, and guess what? We LOVE that! Here’s our favorite inspiring blogs to follow:
RACHEL’S FAVORITE BLOGS:
From beauty to recipes to pregnancy, Lauren Evarts Bosstick talks about it all. She is all about REALNESS and discussing a wide variety of (sometimes taboo) topics. One of Rachel’s favorite posts is on morning pages and Lauren’s tranquil start to every day. It even inspired her own post on the same topic!
This blog holds a special place in our hearts because it was created by a DTC COMMUNITY member, Jen Flanagan! She is an expert in money management and investing, and she helps her readers grow confident in this area as well with posts about ways to earn and save money and how to begin your investing journey. She also creates healthy conversation around sex and relationships. Read about overcoming relationship anxiety and natural sexual wellness products to try!
Coming from opposite coasts, Courtney Seamon and Kelly McFarland bring you fashion and lifestyle inspiration on an everyday budget. And who doesn’t LOVE that, right? These confident and stylish women living in LA and NYC bring you realness and life tips.
I LOVE seeing and supporting these inspiring women and the changes they are making in the world. It’s encouraging to know that the Internet doesn’t have to be so negative. And GIRL, by surrounding yourself with empowering words and women like the ones mentioned above, YOU can find inspiration everyday. But even so, everyone needs a break from scrolling now and then, so consider attending a Ditch the Clique event to find empowerment and connection with other women!
