The Mindful Student: Discovering Your Strengths and Re-Imagining “Success”

Monday, September 11
4:00–5:30 p.m.
1028 Lincoln Hall

This workshop provides opportunities to explore how mindfulness can help you in your life as a student.  Mindfulness is a state of active, open attention on the present; it allows you to observe your thoughts and feelings without judging them good or bad, an approach that can be particularly helpful when dealing with setbacks or making difficult decisions.  The emphasis in this workshop will be on how attitudes of mindfulness can help you slow down, take stock, and learn to define your own success.

See https://publish.illinois.edu/lassuccessworkshops/ for more information about this and other Fall 2017 workshops in the LAS Success series. To learn more about this workshop, email englishadvising@illinois.edu.
