Spring semester has begun! Tips to help start the semester off on the right foot:

  • Prioritizing – Make a checklist to stay organized.
  • Make time for sleep – Develop a routine to ensure you have plenty of ZZZ’s before that morning class.
  • Declutter – Do you still need those notes/papers/books from last semester? Clutter makes it more difficult to focus.
  • Reconnect with friends/study buddies.
  • Set realistic goals – Tell your friends/family so that they may help support you.
  • Get to class early – Rushing can make it difficult to focus and increase stress unnecessarily.
  • ENJOY the experience – Yes, there is work to do, but make it fun!

Mindfulness: What is it and how does one utilize it?

We’ve all heard the phrase, “Live in the moment.” In laymen terms, this is precisely what mindfulness is about.

Mindfulness is:

  • Being consciously aware of the present moment
  • Acceptance of the present without judgment/rejection; simply be
  • Each moment is an experience – do not ignore the present for the past or the future

Mindfulness skills are:

  • Specific behaviors that when combined, compose the concept of mindfulness
  • Observe one’s thoughts/feelings/sensations/etc.
  • Describe one’s observations
  • Participate by giving one’s full attention

Mindfulness Practice:

  • May be done at any moment; after all there is no time like the present
  • Meditation/Prayer/Movement (e.g. yoga/
    hiking/focused breathing/etc.)
