Regional ACE Webinar
Using Mindfulness & Positive Psychology to Help Yourself
and Your Students
Perhaps we can admit that we often race through our days, and so do our students. There seems to be an uptick in the pace of our culture and the pressures we face in everyday life, which can cause stress. Too much stress is not helpful and not good for us. But there are some other trends emerging that are addressing our increased stress levels. As Time magazine puts it, we are moving into a “Mindful Revolution.”
Growing up I told my mom not to say the “M” word in front of my friends. It was way too embarrassing that she was into something as weird as meditation! Now the benefits of meditation and other mindfulness practices are being capitalized upon by CEOs, not to mention being used to transform whole school systems. Individuals, as well as organizations, are now exploring these methods to reduce stress and gain a calmer mind.
During this webinar we’ll talk a little bit about how stress affects us. Then we’ll share tips to help our clients, and ourselves, to reduce our stress using mindfulness practices and positive psychology strategies. The aim for this session is for it to be collaborative, engaging and practical to leave you with ideas to try yourself and share with your students.
