BE MINDFUL AND RESILIENT
May is Mental Health Month.
1 in 5 people will be affected by mental illness in their lifetime. But despite its prevalence, many of us are hesitant to prioritize our mental well-being. That could mean reaching out for support when you’re going through a challenge, recognizing you need a break or taking a class to improve the way you handle stress.
We don’t question the importance of choosing nutritious foods or the positive impact of physical exercise on our health. Advocating for our mental well-being should be just as accepted too.
Individuals explore more mindful living for lots of reasons. Just a couple could be quality of life, performance enhancement and service to others. But one of the most compelling reasons is to manage stress. And no wonder! 80% of U.S. workers feel stress on the job, and nearly half say they (and their colleagues) need help learning to manage it. So why shouldn't it be totally mainstream to use mindfulness meditation programs, which are validated by 47 clinical studies to diminish anxiety and stress.
Let's make caring for our mental health the new normal!
As part of Grand Canyon’s May Be Mindful and Resilient Challenge, we will offer 4 live, virtual workshops, each Wednesday at 12pm AZ Time.
We understand this time and day doesn’t fit into everybody’s schedules. We will be recording all the sessions and making them available on demand, through the rest of 2021. After each workshop you'll find the sessions here to watch any time, along with a few guided mindfulness meditations too.
