Start Your Semester Off Mindfully! Tuesday, 9/1/2015 3:30-4:30 pm, Student Center Room 301
Do you savor life or let everyday stressors control you? The practice of mindfulness is linked to many health benefits including happiness and psychological well-being. It is also linked to better concentration, motivation and academic success! But many students don’t know what mindfulness really is or how to bring it into their lives. This one hour workshop will give you the beginning tools you need to get your semester off on the right “mindful” foot. Sponsored by Counseling Services.
