Micro-Practices for Wellness

July 23, 2021

This workshop invites you to “try-on” specific micro-practices for navigating stress and cultivating wellness. Micro-practices take only seconds to minutes to implement. They include cognitive and somatic practices that aid self-regulation. By self-soothing we naturally cultivate more presence, and more choice in our behavior. During this highly experiential workshop you will hear, see, smell, taste, and feel a variety of micro-practices and develop a plan for applying them. Bring a healthy snack, lunch or beverage, and your favorite wellness strategy to share. Register on the Faculty Development website (faculty only)
