Everyday Resilience: Strategies for Navigating a Meaningful Life

February 15 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

Are you caught up in the daily grind, feeling like something is missing or running on empty? Learn to lead from a place of intention, using your attention to make choices that support your overall well-being. Wake up and discover how operating on autopilot may be taking over too much of your life. By the end of this session, you will have the framework you need to lead with more purpose, and appreciate the smaller, overlooked moments of your day by interrupting depleting patterns that are not serving you well. You may even be amazed by how these small shifts can make a big difference in your day and those you spend time with! 

Register below to join us Feb 15th 5:30 – 7:00pm in the LEC Nicholas Innovation Commons (room #105).

About this course:

Resilience is our innate ability to move through and adapt to challenges in a healthy way. This series will explore how the neuroscience and principles and practices of mindfulness and self-compassion can serve as accessible tools to cultivate sustainable well-being and deepen a sense of purpose in your daily life and work. Investing your time in series will support you in learning to lead from a place of intention, using your attention to navigate difficulties and embrace joy. 

Participants are welcome to sign up for an individual session or the full series, and need only to attend the morning or evening sessions. Participation at each of the three sessions is encouraged but not necessary. 

The Lubar Entrepreneurship Center is pleased to partner with Susan Lubar and Growing Minds on this project.  

Growing Minds has been a pioneer in Southeastern Wisconsin in the area of mental and emotional health as a teachable skill for overall well-being. Founded with the hypothesis that with two minutes every day, educators, students and others, can learn to manage their nervous system, and then set intentions for who they want to be or grow into. Expanding beyond the moment, the compound value of this daily practice could keep well-being at the forefront of one’s mind and naturally grow calmer and more purposeful teams of people. To meet this end, Growing Minds uses short, research-based practices that train the mind to be more grounded and less reactive. These skills build the foundation for more compassionate relationships where individuals have greater opportunities to thrive, no matter their circumstances.
