Learn More About Our Yoga Sculpt Instagram Live Event Instructor, Jeralyn Hawes!

On Sunday, January 30th at 10:00 am EST, MEDIAGIRLS will be hosting a yoga sculpt event on Instagram Live lead by Jeralyn Hawes! Learn more about Jeralyn in our interview below!

MEDIAGIRLS: One of the major things we discuss in our #REALMEDIAGIRL Workshop is being your true self on social media. How do you practice being authentic in your posts?

Jeralyn: I’m honest about my reviews or recommendations – I only partner with products/companies I enjoy and use frequently myself. If I’m asked to post a review for a particular product, I give my genuine feedback as if my audience were my family/close friends.

MEDIAGIRLS: What things do you do to make using social media a healthy and positive experience for you?

Jeralyn: Screen time reminders have been a major help recently! I try to limit usage to no more than 10min at a time and no more than 2 hours a day. Also, only following accounts that make me feel good and if needed, muting/unfollowing certain accounts!

MEDIAGIRLS: What is your favorite thing about social media? 

Jeralyn: The ability to connect with people and the communities you can be a part of! Because of social media, I’ve had the chance to meet and build friendships with some great humans in the past year!

MEDIAGIRLS: Yoga is a wonderful self-care activity. What else do you like to do for self-care?

Jeralyn: I enjoy journaling and having a mindfulness practice. Cooking is something I’ve loved since I was a kid. I love trying new recipes and techniques, and planning weekly meals in advance. Making a nourishing meal for my fiance and myself is something I would definitely consider part of my self care regimen.

MEDIAGIRLS: Why do you support MEDIAGIRLS?

Jeralyn: Community and Common missions. Through education, we’re empowering our girls and women to build an environment that aligns with their values and goals, and positively impacts their well-being! As a woman, I also understand the pressures to look a certain way on social media and the impact it can have on self-esteem. I think what MEDIAGIRLS is doing is important for our next generation.
