We’re living under unprecedented stress, social isolation, and uncertainty. If you’re feeling scared at this time, it’s only natural. It’s what you do with that fear that matters.
Left unchecked, our fear can escalate to nervousness, anxiety, and panic. (You can read more about this in a blog post I wrote on a mindful approach to the Coronavirus).
Join me in weekly, 40-minute online meetings on Fridays at noon, to practice mindfulness and foster skills to find your inner calm, clarity, and ability to make conscious choices that are good for you and others around you. If you want to check out the missed sessions, visit my blog for the video recordings and key mindfulness strategies for each session.
Topics we’ll explore are:
- How to calm down in the midst of it all
- A mind hack for stress reduction
- Know your mind for more control over your life
- How to focus on our goals in the midst of uncertainty
- Shifting from scarcity mindset to growth mindset
- Mindful communication in times of social isolation
Benefits you can expect are:
- Feel calmer and gain clarity
- Be more focused on what you can do
- Reduce anxiety
- Sleep better
- Improve your immunity system
- More fulfilling relationships
The topics are based on what we’re hearing from the community. The mindfulness practices and strategies are secular and evidence-based. I am drawing from my research and training as a certified Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (program that started at UMass Medical School) and Search Inside Yourself (program that started at Google) teacher. This series will address the negative outcomes of fear with mindfulness-based solutions supported by psychology and neuroscience.
Grateful to partner with the Greenfield Community College, the Amherst Business Improvement District, the Amherst Area Chamber of Commerce, and The Mill District to make this series accessible to members of our community. Please check out their websites for other resources and support they are offering at this time to support our local residents, non-profits, and businesses.
