Faculty/Staff Workshop: Practicing Mindfulness to Reduce Stress
If stress has you anxious, tense and worried, consider trying meditation. Spending even a few minutes in meditation can restore your calm and inner peace. Anxiety can mentally exhaust you and have real impacts on your body, but before you get anxious about being anxious, know that research has shown you can reduce your anxiety and stress with a simple mindfulness practice. Mindfulness is about paying attention to daily life and the things we typically rush through.
The psychological benefits of meditation are wide-ranging — heightened creativity, decreased stress and anxiety, decreased irritability, improved memory and even increased happiness and emotional stability.
The workshop will be held at 1 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 9.
