It’s a busy, loud world and being mindful can help manage the chaos.

Mindfulness means paying attention in a particular way—on purpose, in the moment, and non-judgmentally. During this class, students will learn and practice various mindfulness and meditation techniques that can help improve sleep; reduce stress and anxiety; improve focus, work performance, and eating behaviors; and contribute to a greater sense of well-being and happiness. Mindfulness is a skill that takes practice to learn and hone—which is exactly what this four-week workshop is designed to do.

This course meets once a week for four weeks (June 3, 10, 17, and 24), and each session is 60 minutes. Attendance at all four sessions is advised. Registration is available online. Contact Health Promotion and Wellness at (309) 438-WELL (9355) or for additional information.
