Learn to Know the Now: Mindfulness Programming
Have you ever wanted to learn better ways to handle stress and difficult emotions? Perhaps you have wondered how to improve your ability to concentrate or listen. Simple, daily mindfulness practices offer opportunities for these benefits and many more! Mindfulness techniques bring your awareness into present moment experiences and have been linked with student success and wellness.
A recent study published in the Journal of American College Health found mindfulness-based training “revealed a significant increase in academic performance as reflected by higher semester grade point average (GPA)” and also correlated with “increased academic persistence over time.”
