Cultivating Resilience & Self-compassion for Stress Reduction - October 21, 2021

Presented by Shaila Khan from Student Counselling and Well Being.

Let’s face it, today’s culture values perfection. We may feel additional pressure towards academic excellence, as we navigate hybrid learning and nearly two years of uncertainty due to the pandemic.

Do you need new strategies to increase your resilience and overcome burnout? This workshop will look at the function of stress, how it affects our well-being , and how we can develop realistic strategies to implement mindfulness. We will also look at practices for self-compassion and mindfulness tools that support stress-reduction.
