What's On My Mind: (Why) We ALL Need A Break From Our Lives
Welcome back! Today it's just yanaiya and we dive into why we not only need a break from social media, but from our lives. Burnout has been real in all of us after this last year and even if you're not doing much per se, we are bound to need a break. We have all experienced drama, collective drama and well, whether you're climbing a mountain everyday or not, we all need a break. The final results of my poll: 91% said yes to feeling burnout  and 84% yes to having lack of motivation & inspiration.  Shani Darden Skin Care: Website, Instagram, Find them at Sephora  Stay up to date on My Instagram, and the Podcasts Instagram
