Attitude of Gratitude
Join us to discover all the hidden rays of sunshine that keep you going when times get rough. We will practice scientifically proven methods to increase your level of gratitude and your overall well-being!
The Matter of Mindfulness
Are you mindful or mind-full? Do you often find yourself going through your day and not remembering how you spent it? Try some mindfulness practices with us and learn more about how mindfulness can be used to better focus in class, improve relationships, and combat stress.
Practicing self-love and developing healthy relationships are fundamental components to boosting well-being. This workshop offers conversation around the different ways students can foster a self-compassionate attitude while also cultivating nourishing relationships with others.
Power of Positivity
Sometimes the positive is hidden in plain sight. You don’t have to imagine it, all you have to do look for it! Join us as we use our magnifying glasses to train our eyes to look for the positive side of things and learn how being more positive can increase your overall wellbeing and productivity!
We all know the benefits of healthy eating, exercise, and a good night’s sleep, but how often do we put theory into practice? Join us in learning practical tips that will help you integrate physical self-care into your everyday schedule.
