Mindfulness and Anxiety


Wednesday, May 5, 2021, 10:00am to 11:00am



Occasional anxiety is a natural human experience, but for many people, anxiety can become a source of ongoing distress, capable of interfering with everyday life. Efforts to avoid anxiety may involve distraction or avoidance, but these efforts provide only temporary relief. Mindfulness, on the other hand, offers a pathway to meet the experience of anxiety, and in doing so, restore valued activity, rather than allowing ourselves to be dominated by fear and avoidance.

This free workshop will introduce the use of mindfulness as a way to understand and respond to the experience of anxiety. Audience: All Benefits-Eligible Faculty and Staff; Prerequisite: Introduction to Mindfulness, Ten Percent Happier, or a current mindfulness practice.
