A while back I took some time away from social media. It felt really good. I got to spend even more time out in nature – where I belong – and still had plenty of time to work on my herbal remedies, write, create and loads, loads more.
I can’t say I’ve ever really fallen in love with being on social media. I had hopes of meeting tonnes of like-minded people and sharing my knowledge widely.
