Just Breathe: Mindfulness Practices for Busy Higher Ed Practitioners
It seems like every day there is a new article about how mindfulness can help improve our lives or alleviate a different symptom. As extremely busy higher education practitioners, our days are often an attempt to manage numerous requests for our limited time and energy from administrators, faculty and students – in a calm and effective manner. How do we balance these demands and complete our work without feeling overloaded and stressed? Mindfulness, while not a magic bullet, can provide us with the ability to relax and center ourselves with each task in the midst of busy times, allowing us to focus more clearly and be present with less stress. But how do we get started when we’re already so busy? This presentation will demonstrate how anyone with just a few minutes a day can begin to incorporate mindfulness into their lives and reap the benefits. The presenter, who teaches mindfulness to young adults, will briefly review the concepts of mindfulness and meditation, and lead hands-on practices in the session. Attendees will leave feeling more calm and centered, with ideas and resources for implementing mindfulness into their day. No chanting or sitting cross-legged required!.
