Oct 4: Mindfulness Based Practices for Maintaining Emotional Health. Are you looking to be more mindful in your day-to-day life? This one hour workshop will walk you through the connection between mindfulness, meditation and mental health. Cara will walk participants through some basic mindfulness based stress reduction practices and how our thoughts affect our emotions. Whether you meditate regularly or have never tried it, there is something in this workshop for you.
October 11:How to Manage Stress and Thrive How can you keep a clear, cool head while under stress? We know from experience (and cutting edge research) that trying to push stress away is a downright waste of energy, but we keep hearing how bad it is for us! Stress is not going to disappear, but we can learn to use it for good. In this one hour workshop we will learn to recognize stress for what it is. We will better understand the physical and psychological impact of meeting stress with more stress vs with a calm, clear presence. We will learn and practice ways to shift our mindsets and activate the enhancing aspects of stress.
October 18: The Power of Positive Psychology  There is a great deal of research documenting that optimists, and their positive thinking, are happier, healthier, more successful, have lower rates of depression and distress, and have longer life spans. Optimistic thinking is largely advantageous in this changing world - the best part is that optimism is a learned skill that can be taught and practiced. This workshop will help participants understand why we tend to be pessimistic and what simple steps we can do to become more optimistic.
October 25: Social Media and Mental Health  The world has changed in the past generation making internet and social media not just entertainment but a mainstay in everyday life. Consumption of social media, especially in today’s world, can have negative affects on our mental and emotional health. This workshop will discuss the benefits of social media as well as the darkside and negative affects on mental health and stability. You will learn warnings signs to look for and review key ways to use social media in a healthy and productive way.
