Strengths and Mindfulness Workshop
See full workshop description and details
Can you name your top five strengths, those things you like doing and are good at? Give it a try.
If you’re struggling to name five or even any at all, don’t worry. Most people do. You see, while your brain has a built-in negativity bias that makes it easy for you to spot your weaknesses, it generally isn’t well equipped when it comes to identifying your strengths.
Using your strengths mindfully will help you hit what psychologists call a state of “flow”. That’s when you’re completely absorbed in what you’re doing, energized by the process and left with a real sense of satisfaction and accomplishment.
This Strengths and Mindfulness workshop can help you identify your own strengths and get familiar with them. Through some mindfulness exercises, you will develop tools to help you choose and pull from the appropriate strength for each situation, helping you thrive academically, personally and professionally.
The workshop is free. It is part of a research project conducted by a graduate student pursuing a Master’s degree in Applied Positive Psychology at the University of East London. The workshop has been approved by the ethics committees of the University of East London (UEL) and Concordia University.
We are looking for undergraduate students aged between 18-25 years old and enrolled in a full-time program at Concordia University who are interested in learning more about themselves.
Lunch will be provided on March 13.
Information session (optional): March 8, from 12:45 to 1:45 p.m. in H-440.
