Mindfulness in Everyday Life

Do you struggle to slow down, pay attention, and be present?  Do you often find yourself so lost in thoughts and emotion that you miss out on your life and fail to relax, enjoy, and live fully?  Mindfulness is a proven practice that enables you to (1) be more non-judgmental, patient and present, (2) be more aware of what you are thinking and (3) act more effectively in the situations that arise.  This group uses various meditation practices, group discussion, and interactive exercises to help you find more balance, peace, and contentment -  practices that you can incorporate into your everyday life.

Understanding Self and Others

This group will focus on general day-to-day issues that limit or constrain group members' abilities to fully enjoy and to derive satisfaction from their lives. Subjects of discussion will be developed naturally by the interests of the members of the group, but may include addressing daily challenges, overcoming hurdles, dealing with conflict and roadblocks, working with others more effectively, and deepening the personal skills needed to become more satisfied with our lives.

LifeHacks for Graduate Students

LifeHacks for Graduate Students:  This group will focus on finding shortcuts for grad students to help them manage their personal time and work productivity more effectively through mutual support, sharing differing perspectives and resources to improving daily activities such as study habits, sleep improvement methods, and stress management.  We are looking for some participants to add to our "Think-Tank" to help figure out how to de-code the complicated lives of a graduate student.
