Friday, April 23, 2021 - 12:00pm to 1:30pm

Presenter: Rob Walsh, B.F.A., M.S. Candidate; Mindfulness Practitioner and Instructor

The sudden, unexpected shift to remote work has compelled many of us to get “creative” with our new workstations. But as we settle into working from home for the long term, it’s clear that the kitchen counter is not a sustainable solution. This session takes a mindful approach to identifying working-from-home behaviors and environmental factors that may be causing us pain and distress. We will also use evidence-based learning and hands-on activities to help cultivate healthier, more productive at-home work, including:

  • Scientific perspectives on the mind-body relationship
  • Short mindfulness and physical activities, which can be easily integrated into daily routines to boost energy, reduce stress, and relax the body
  • Methods to optimize your current work environment for peak focus and wellbeing
