Just us on Wednesdays from 4:30 – 5:30 p.m. thought the semester for Well-Being Wednesday workshops presented by CSU Health Network and SLiCE

ROOM: TILT 221

What makes a good life? Learn about the three research supported pathways to well-being: pleasure, engagement, and meaning. Get tips on using these pathways to help you be more resilient and live a more fully balanced life.

Learn about maintaining effective physical self-care practices, including eating well, exercising, and getting enough sleep. You will be introduced to helpful tips/tricks as well as resources in these three different areas. Engage in relevant discussions, complete your own self-care assessment, and take away a self-drafted plan to implement in your life.

This workshop focuses on how to recognize and overcome test anxiety. Self-assessment and group discussion are designed to help participants identify whether their struggles stem from test-preparation problems or test-anxiety challenges. Throughout the workshop there are opportunities to practice and build new skills.

During this interactive presentation, you will gain a better understanding of the stress response, the positive and negative effects of stress, and the influence of the mind/body connection to stress management. Discussion and activities will help you better understand the causes of stress, identify its warning signs, and how to use different coping techniques and resources.

If you’ve experienced failure, you’re not alone. Most of us are hard-wired to avoid the pain of failure. This innate response can reduce your capacity to recover and can negatively impact your health. Yet, failure has much to teach. Learn the steps you can take to cope, learn, and grow from life’s inevitable difficulties.

Learn how to increase your confidence when connecting with your peers and how to be more authentic, curious, and open in your interactions with them. Learn how to use other people’s favorite words to build connection, avoid the worst of small talk, and how to integrate the “A-Z Talk,” the “Engagement Ring Story,” the “Left Eye” and “T-Rex” concepts, among others, into your communication style. Ultimately, learn the how to reach and find belonging, over merely fitting in.

Being creative can help us reduce stress by giving our thinking mind a break. Creating something can be restorative, boosts our mood, and takes very little time. In this session, you will experience various ways to bring creative breaks in small moments of everyday life. No prior skills required.
