Ana Homayoun will speak on her latest book, “Social Media Wellness: Helping Teens and Tweens Thrive in an Unbalanced Digital World” which explores the way social media is ingrained in all of our lives, but especially in those of teens and tweens. Young people are often living in two different worlds: one online and one IRL (in real life), and the stress of this balancing act affects all aspects of student wellness, from academic abilities and social well-being to emotional and physical health. This situation presents unique challenges for educators and parents, as children and students are often unable to self-regulate their consumption of digital media, which can lead to symptoms of depression and anxiety. The book, which is grounded in research and based on over fifteen years of working with students of all ages, offers help for students, parents, educators, and policymakers as they navigate the ever-changing issues involving social networking and healthy teen development.

“Social Media Wellness: Helping Teens and Tweens Thrive in an Unbalanced Digital World”Details

Today’s students (and adults!) face a challenging paradox: the digital tools they need to complete their work are often the source of their biggest distractions. It doesn’t take long for any of us to become overwhelmed trying to manage the daily confluence of online interactions with work, social activities, and family life. Noted educator and author Ana Homayoun ’01 travels all over the world helping students, parents and educators find solutions to today’s modern social media dilemmas. Her new book, Social Media Wellness, offers fresh insights and a solutions-oriented perspective to help parents and educators successfully decode the new language of social media, and provides pragmatic solutions to help us all manage distractions, improve time-management, and feel less stressed. Social Media Wellness focuses on the new language of social media, and how we as parents and educators can be far more effective in promoting intrinsic motivation with tweens and teens if we shift the conversation away from fear and towards a focus on healthy socialization, effective self-regulation, and overall safety.

Ana Homayoun will speak on her latest book, “Social Media Wellness: Helping Teens and Tweens Thrive in an Unbalanced Digital World” which explores the way social media is ingrained in all of our lives, but especially in those of teens and tweens. Young people are often living in two different worlds: one online and one IRL (in real life), and the stress of this balancing act affects all aspects of student wellness, from academic abilities and social well-being to emotional and physical health. This situation presents unique challenges for educators and parents, as children and students are often unable to self-regulate their consumption of digital media, which can lead to symptoms of depression and anxiety. The book, which is grounded in research and based on over fifteen years of working with students of all ages, offers help for students, parents, educators, and policymakers as they navigate the ever-changing issues involving social networking and healthy teen development.

In today’s world of high expectations, many individuals – regardless of age – feel an underlying or overarching anxiety of never feeling good enough, and believing that something is “missing” in their pursuit of achievement, success, and happiness. It doesn’t have to be this way! Ana Homayoun discusses the importance of recognizing that we each have our own internal definition of perfection, which is often the first step in redefining and honing values, developing healthy habits, and pursuing a purpose-filled life.
