Ep. 36 – Break-Up With Social Media To Become A Better Version Of Yourself

by | Challenge & Growth, Healthy Habits (Mind Body), podcast

An Interview with Johan Versteegh – Life and Digital Wellness Coach and the cofounder of Social Media Breakup, who knows firsthand about the downsides of screen addiction and how to recover using his “6 Step Formula Series.”

A few years ago, Johan Versteegh suffered from cell phone and social media addiction. When he realized and accepted the adverse effects on his life, he knew he had to find a way to unhook himself from screens. He knew that he couldn’t totally abstain from technology; after all, he worked in the IT industry! Accepting that there was a way to take charge of his screen time rather than feel driven by it, he began to explore ways to first disengage from mindless interaction with his devices and then reengage with them mindfully.

As Johan began to heal himself, he realized others were struggling with the same addiction. After gaining clarity about his life purpose, he became a Life and Digital Wellness Coach and eventually created Social Media Breakup. His mission is helping individuals and families recover from phone and social media addiction enabling them to become better versions of themselves.
