Mindful Mondays

Mindful Monday is back!

Start your week enjoying the benefits of mindfulness – calm focus, greater clarity, and positive energy! Join a community of NC State faculty and staff who are learning and practicing mindfulness-based stress reduction techniques together, in Zoom, every Monday at 9:00 AM.*

    Session Objectives:

    • Practice gentle movement and stretching
    • Learn and practice breathing techniques
    • Experience a guided meditation session
    • Connect with other NC State faculty and staff

    There is considerable evidence that the practice of mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR) techniques builds resilience by training our attention and awareness on the present moment while acknowledging any thoughts, feelings, or sensations we are having. Mindfulness is a path to cultivate a calm, focused mind and offset the negative mental and physiological effects of stress, anxiety, and fear. An added benefit of mindfulness practice is the opportunity to offer kindness, empathy, and compassion to ourselves and others.

    This program is suitable for and open to all NC State faculty and staff. No previous knowledge of meditation is needed, and you can join us from wherever you are on Monday mornings. You must be an authenticated user to join the Zoom session link, and participants may choose to have their camera off or on during the session. *Audio recordings will be available after the sessions for those who cannot attend live. They are at the bottom of this page.
