6 Steps to Living Authentically Beyond Social Media

6 Steps to Living Authentically Beyond Social Media


In a world where social media often dictates trends and norms, it's easy to get caught up in the pursuit of likes, shares, and superficial validation. But true happiness and fulfillment come from living authentically and unapologetically. Embracing your unique quirks, passions, and individuality is the key to a vibrant, empowered life. 

Here are six steps to help you live authentically beyond social media.

STEP 1: **Self-Reflection and Awareness**

The first step to living authentically is understanding who you are. Take time for self-reflection to identify your values, passions, and beliefs. Journaling, meditation, or even long walks in nature can provide the space to think deeply about your identity. Understanding yourself is crucial for aligning your actions and decisions with your true self, rather than with what might be trending online.

STEP 2: **Limit Social Media Consumption**

While social media can be a great tool for staying connected, it can also distort our perception of reality. Set boundaries for your social media use by scheduling specific times for checking your accounts and sticking to them. Consider digital detoxes where you take a break from social media for a day, a weekend, or even longer. This will help you focus on real-life interactions and experiences.

Our electrifying neon blue holographic polish is your rallying cry to speak up and stand out where it matters, in real life! 

STEP 3: **Cultivate Real-Life Connections**

Invest time in building and maintaining relationships offline. Arrange face-to-face meetups with friends and family, engage in community events, or join clubs that interest you. These real-life interactions foster deeper connections and provide a sense of belonging that goes beyond the superficiality of online likes and comments. But be sure to show exactly as yourself!

We all have quirks that make us unique, and **Kookie**, our brilliantly bold neon green holographic polish, is here to celebrate them.

STEP 4: **Pursue Activities That Reflect Your True Interests**

Engage in hobbies and activities that genuinely interest you, regardless of their social media appeal. Whether it's painting, hiking, cooking, or gardening, doing what you love without the pressure to post about it can be liberating. These activities allow you to express your creativity and passions authentically. So go ahead, buy that weird thing you want... but just for you! Not for the gram!

STEP 5: *Practice Mindfulness**

Mindfulness involves being present in the moment without judgment. It can help you become more aware of your thoughts and feelings, and how they influence your behavior. Practices like meditation, yoga, or even mindful breathing exercises can ground you in the present and reduce the impulse to compare yourself to others online. Being mindful doesn't mean you need to dim your light though. 

**Extra**, our dazzling teal holographic polish, is for those who live life to the fullest and aren't afraid to be the center of attention. Live life for the present!

STEP 6: **Set Personal Goals and Prioritize Them**

Define what success and happiness mean to you personally, not through the lens of social media. Set realistic and meaningful goals that align with your values and work towards them diligently. Celebrating your achievements, no matter how small, can boost your confidence and reinforce your commitment to living authentically.

We all have a wild side that longs to be free. Feral, our neon purple holographic polish, encourages you to unleash it. This fierce shade celebrates every flaw as a mark of individuality.


Living unapologetically is the opposite of living for social media. It’s about finding joy in your true self, not in the number of likes or followers you have. It’s about being authentic, embracing your individuality, and celebrating your uniqueness. The Unapologetic Collection is a tribute to this way of life. Each hand-mixed shade is a reminder to live boldly, fearlessly, and unapologetically.
