Evanna Lynch Returns From Social Media & 'Regular Life' Break: 'It Was Radical!'

Evanna Lynch just took a week off from social media and her “regular life,” and she’s highly encouraging fans to do the same!

The Dancing with the Stars and Harry Potter star shared her story on Instagram on Saturday (September 7).

“Hello instafam!” she captioned the photo below. “I just took a week off my regular life + social media and it was RADICAL. I told everyone I was going on holiday but I did not go on holiday! I stayed home and hibernated. I was feeling burnt out and like I needed a holiday from being me so that’s exactly what I took!”

“Here’s what I did instead of my norm,” she continued. “I made lots of smoothies. I took some aerial silks classes. I took down all the books I was intimidated by and I read 3.5 of them. I planned to read 10 but I watched a lot of Friends too. I went and bought blonde dreads and sat and braided them into my hair for 5 hours while listening to Stephen Fry’s Mythos. I realised that blonde dreads, much to my surprise, are NOT a good look for me so I took them back out. Stephen Fry definitely felt like my closest friend this week and that made me understand all the friends I have who listened to the HP books rather than read them. I used to think listening to the books was cheating but now I realise it’s a completely different experience. Sometimes I cheated and went on social media and I pretended I was a ghost looking in at the world after I’d died.”

“I went and got measured for a bra because I’ve never done that because I have been so secretly disgusted by being a woman for years that I didn’t want to know what truthful bra size I am and could live in blissful ignorance and would just repeat the same safe little numbers to people who dared ask,” she added. “I sat in the park for a couple hours after, covertly scrutinising the chests of other women and trying to come to terms with the fact that I, too, am a normal woman. I had an unprecedented amount of imaginary conversations with men. I brought Puff to the park. I watched lots of DWTS rehearsal videos and wondered what else I could learn if I had more self belief. I read about Britney Spears’ conservatorship. I love Britney Spears.”

“It was such a good week,” Evanna Lynch finished. “I strongly recommend taking a few days off being yourself. Life is so fast paced. It is so structured and dogged and relentless that you don’t actually get the time to ask who am I? What do I love? What am I doing it for? But if you make your world quiet and tune back into yourself again the answers are there.”
