Meet the #SelfieAddict with a cause. Chad Walters joins me this week on the show sharing his own Journey 2 Worthy.
PART 2 is now available here with CHAD:
When we discuss how #SELFIES & SOCIAL MEDIA can be used to better your self-esteem and help build Community & Connection!
Check out Chad’s view on Selfies in his blog titled #LOVEYOURSELFIE(CLICK here) where he discusses how inevitably, YES we would appreciate ‘likes’ on our posts, and YES, they do impact self-esteem and confidence! But do they need to reflect our entire self-worth: NO! Chad suggests that you: #Loveyourselfie & Take part in creating your own self-confidence with the use of Social Media!
ALSO check out Chad’s research paper on Social Media and Mental Health, READ IT HERE: SNSs and Mental Health.
Chad explores how self-esteem is impacted by social media and apps like Instagram. He brings forward an important point in this paper, how lifestyle envy and FOMO (fear of missing out) are more prevalent among those who follow too many strangers online.
Don’t miss on PART 2 of the interview we discuss how the general public forgets that the perfect photo of a yoga pose, or all the travel photos make the person appear superhuman, or super-rich, but when you actually know the person, you can see there’s more to them than perfection.
Chad and I encourage you to reach out to people you follow online, to ask them how they got to where they are, you’d be surprised how they may respond! Chad states: ‘I have made great friends through SNSs (social network sites), and I actually feel part of something special, which is in stark contrast to growing up feeling apart from.’ A comment I agree with completely! He also urges us to look at social media through a lens of curiosity and excitement, rather than of concern.
From NUDISM to SELFIES, his time on REALITY TV, to FALLING in LOVE. YOU WILL DEFINITELY WANT TO HEAR PART 2 OF INTERVIEW WITH CHAD WALTERS, The man behind the MODEL!
THANKS FOR ANOTHER GREAT WEEK OF ENGAGEMENT! I love all you friends on the journey sharing your moments with me!
