Are you feeling the load of stress right now? It’s a big concern for everyone in these busy and very uncertain times. Mindfulness can be a powerful approach to self-care. It is about paying attention in a particular way--on purpose, in the present moment, and without judgment. It’s a skill that also takes practice to cultivate and when used can help manage stress and boost emotional wellness.

Staff Council, along with counselors from CU’s Faculty & Staff Assistance Program, invite you to a presentation and Q&A about how you can utilize FSAP as your employee mental health support resource and gain ideas for mindfulness-based stress management strategies.

In this session we will explore:

  • Benefits of the FSAP program
  • Review the neuroscience behind the stress response
  • Identify the effects of mindfulness practice on the stress response
  • Learn simple mindfulness and self-care practices to be used daily

We highly encourage CU employees to attend to learn more about the FSAP office and techniques to navigate stress during this challenging time.
