This webinar will provide information on how faculty and educators can use mindfulness practice to improve their mental health. Mindfulness is a quality that individuals can display while being fully aware of their immediate surroundings and noticing all things happening based on the five senses: sight, hearing, smell, taste, and touch. However,this is challenging for some individuals to experience the “being in the moment” feeling. Nevertheless, mindfulness can be integrated into classroom discussions, communications, and assignments.
In this webinar, participants will learn about the origin of mindfulness practice, the Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) techniques, and the success of this approach in hospitals, industrial organizations, business corporations, schools, and colleges. Additionally, participants will be able to assess their personal responses to stressors when working under pressure and learn new strategies to help them transform adverse reactions into positive ones,
significantly impacting their well-being, resilience, and stress management while teaching or working.
