Mindfulness for Well-being in Stressful Times for CSU Students
Are you feeling overwhelmed? Need to get a handle on your stress? This 4-week workshop will cover 10 mindfulness practices to support your well-being. Mindfulness is a way to train ourselves to be in the present moment with awareness, acceptance, and self-compassion. Practicing mindfulness can help us cope with difficult experiences, cultivate meaning, and boost positive emotions. In this series we will delve into mind-body techniques which can strengthen our skills for dealing with life. We will also have time to practice these new skills. We meet on zoom once a week and attending all 4 sessions is encouraged. Registration is required: https://forms.gle/YyLTVYuvZWTX3zHs9
