Social Media Workshop in Chandapura

A two-day “Social Media Education” workshop was held in Nazareth Convent, Chandapura, on May 2-3, 2023. The workshop addressed the relationship of social media addiction to an individual’s mental health, lifestyle, self-esteem, and its potential adverse outcomes.

The resource person was Sister Joeyanna, Daughters of St. Paul, an expert in digital sales and marketing at Pauline Publications and Communications. She emphasized the need for a contemplative centering prayer to be effective disciples of Jesus. 

The workshop offered techniques to deal with smartphone addictions and be freed from them. The smaller and larger group sharing created a platform for us to bring out our struggles and find a solution. The call was to accept oneself and be open to receiving grace from the Divine and others to grow as a mature religious woman. 

 Twenty-two Sisters benefited from various topics such as internet addiction, affective love of Jesus, and binge-watching. By using real-life examples and interactive discussions, Sister Joeyanna helped the participants to explore the influence of different types of social media. The Sisters also learned ways to get out of social media addiction and our effectiveness in mission and our well-being.
