Faithflows focuses on Digital wellness with the aim to ensure we have a healthy relationship where technology is concerned both in our working lives as well as our social lives. Through WordWorks , we have managed to realize the alarming decline of youth well-being correlating with the increase in Smartphone proliferation and social media usage,thereby creating a safe place for young people to engage and learn online without fear of being bullied or prejudiced.
One ripple effect of the COVID-19 pandemic has been the hit to the economy that left many people jobless, furloughed or taking significant pay cuts as well as making it impossible for other young people to even have anything that can help them and their communities. Hence, the need to have Word works meetings, establishing common themes from the issues shared and how these issues make people feel by the uncertainty of everything, especially economically, spiritually, physically and emotionally. With the email to solicit feedback, as this will help to air out these issues and build connection amongst the group and with others universally.
We aim to work with principles for a high-functioning group, and among these key principles are universality and instillation of hope, through the use of the word). In these emotionally turbulent times, the cohesiveness felt in Word Works can take on new meaning because of the umbrella of uncertainty we are living under. And the need to foster optimism during a global crisis is going to be catapulted to the forefront.
Lockdown drastically complicates the goal of maintaining proper self-care. The World Health Organization (WHO) suggested a rise in depression as a result of routines and livelihoods being altered. Of course, standard self-care practices for many quickly fell out of the picture as the pandemic escalated. Circumstances like these push others to get more innovative and imaginative, yet for some they end up suffering as they do not have a clue on what to do. Hence an important issue to talk about in word works.
Another important element to consider in word works is the idea of connection provided by social media and how an overconsumption of that medium can actually be detrimental to one’s well-being. That’s especially the case when it comes to ingesting news that often has negative headlines.
