Mindful Use of Social Media
Social media can connect people across the world, but it can also make our world seem more narrow. In this talk we’ll discuss strategies for using social media platforms in a more mindful way, giving ourselves breaks from constant posting, alerts, and notifications that affect our sense of well-being and self-worth. Mike Mueller, Sister Deborah Troillett and Cory Jones will lead the session.
This program will be held in the Harper Lee Room on the fifth floor of the Main Library at 100 Rock Street in Little Rock.
“Mindfulness is the basic human ability to be fully present, aware of where we are and what we’re doing, and not overly reactive or overwhelmed by what’s going on around us. The goal of mindfulness is to wake up to the inner workings of our mental, emotional, and physical processes. Mindfulness is available to us in every moment, whether through meditations and body scans, or mindful moment practices like taking time to pause and breathe when the phone rings instead of rushing to answer it.” – Mindful.org
