"I'll just hop on social media for five minutes."

Have you said that recently? Did it turn into two hours instead?

My instincts are telling me you may not have felt very refreshed or happy when you were done.

Too much information. Too many opinions. Not enough time.

You can barely remember what you were doing or thinking before you started your social binge.

You may use social media to feel less alone, but using it doesn't feel good in your soul.

It's not your fault. And it's not about self-control. Social media companies create apps from top to bottom to keep you using, regardless if it's actually beneficial for you.

We crave emotional relationships

Whether in person or online, people want to reach out and get to know each other. It's a natural and necessary process in our lives. Many times, however, when a screen comes between us, the connection feels less genuine, more forced. Assumptions and miscommunications can lead to frustration, anxiety and negative experiences.

You need real human connection and support to change your social media habits.

No group classes or membership sites. This is one-on-one coaching. A real person to hold your hand and keep you accountable.

No need to delete your social media accounts

Imagine incorporating the following healthy habits in your life, with ease, when you use social media less.

How would you feel if your habits let you control your media consumption? What intentions could you see to fruition with your extra focus and time?

I have an assortment of tools and techniques I have built into a coaching course made just for you. A course that will make a big difference in your day-to-day life, whenever you are confronted with a screen.

Reduce Your Use: Cutting Back on Social Media for Increased Productivity

A One-on-One Coaching Course

How it works: Each week consists of two half-hour phone calls scheduled at times that work best for you, then a fifth call the third week to check-in and wrap things up. I will be sending weekly emails which contain worksheets you can complete while we are talking and during your own time. These worksheets can take about an extra hour a week. Everyone learns differently and some techniques that work well for some won't work for others. That is why I work one-on-one to personally help you grow life-altering habits and find methods that keep you accountable.

Kudos from happy clients.

"You work hard to infuse the clients ideas and not your own."

"That you are personable, easy to converse with, and have a way of interpreting and understanding what it is that they are trying to say. You're like a mind reader."

"She asks just the right questions to help understand your mission, but these questions also help organize your own thoughts and ideas. You'll leave the consultation feeling inspired and motivated.

"You are extremely patient, and very creative, and able to execute your idea in the most organized ways.

"I appreciate your timely replies, emails and sense of caring. I feel you put a lot of time and energy into me as a client. But, I'm also someone that likes people I know I can count on, which is super important and I feel I do with you."
—New Client

"My biggest learning experience was my own growth and figuring out the direction I was going to take. You helped get that out of me, guide me in the right direction. I also trusted you (which I don't with many) that I could run things by you or where I was going, you gave me your honest opinion. You get me and my creative vision — it's been a great business collaboration."

"I always tell my clients and friends how intuitive and easy you are to work with. While working together, there's always a point where I can almost hear the "click!" when all of the questions and ideas snap together in a way that I might not have considered before. During the process, I've always felt that my input was truly heard with all of my feelings considered. That's a big deal for creatives and since you are one, that familiarity shines through!"

About Your Coach

Hi! I'm Kaytlyn, your Work/Life Balance Coach and accountability partner at Beneficial Habits. It's a pleasure to meet you.

After graduating with a degree in Web Design and Interactive Media, I worked in a user interaction and management capacity for a variety of companies, from tech startups to print and photography studios. Since launching my own business in 2005, I’ve worked with hundreds of clients, including award-winning bloggers, event producers, artists, retailers, authors and wellness providers. When they were ready to grow their audience from hundreds of readers to hundreds of thousands of them, they found me. It's been an honor to work with them all.

My special needs son needed more help at school and my health started to deteriorate. The election, before and after, was too much to take. I felt burned to a crisp. Overwhelmed. I spent the next year away from social media and reflecting on what role technology should have in our lives.

I started taking care of myself, found therapy and support, and went to numerous doctor appointments. In the last nine months I have lost over 40 pounds after altering both mind and body habits. My intentions are slow and ever expanding, and I'm still improving.

After retiring the web and branding studio portion of my business I created Beneficial Habits to support mindfulness online. I now help my clients have a beneficial experience with social media, instilling habits that help create more balance and sanity in their lives.

Looking forward to hearing from you,

Frequently Asked Questions

Who calls who?
I will call you.

Can you accommodate a fluctuating schedule?
You get to pick the dates and times of our coaching appointments that work best for you with my scheduler. They don't have to be the same days each week.

What if I fall sick?
I can easily reschedule if you contact me 24 hours before our coaching appointment. If it's the same day, my availability for your next appointment may have to be pushed out a bit. I can also be available to live chat with you at your appointment time if that helps.

Do I need to purchase any other materials or apps?
It's possible. I try to find free options whenever I can, but sometimes a tool is totally worth helping you commit to a new habit. Usually apps costs less than $5 and I try not to recommend any with expensive subscriptions. A notebook or journal (it could be one you are already using) is very helpful and I also highly recommend a large wall calendar you can write on (like this dry erase version). Sometimes an online service that automates or organizes a large part of your social media use is a great investment to reclaim your time. When I do recommend services, they are usually between free and $50/month and are not required.

Is there much homework?
I would estimate about an 20 minutes to one hour's worth of homework after each phone call, but each session is different. Some sessions set you up with tracking apps, others journaling, and some have videos to watch. Creating habits has a bit of homework because you are having to think, act and be mindful of your own time.

Do you also include marketing ideas? Or ways to increase sales?
This is not a marketing program. There are so many good ones out there I would be happy to recommend, but if you are wanting to sign up to increase profit margins or reach more people, this is not the coaching for you. My goal is to help you create healthy habits so you can focus on your work without the burnout while also becoming more focused with your intentions on social media. Many of my clients realize that when they do this, they are more effective online while spending less time on social media.

Do you offer refunds?
Sorry, no refunds are offered at this time. We can reschedule calls to whatever works for you.
