Well Entrepreneur: Wishing You Well & a Meditation for Compassion

Welcome back to our first Well Entrepreneur letter of the new year!

As we enter a new semester and year, Well Entrepreneur is committed to focusing on ways to support and sustain entrepreneurial well-being in daily life. That’s why we’re excited to share our new series, Meditation for Entrepreneurs!

The path of entrepreneurship is rewarding yet full of different challenges that can affect our well-being. Making intentional time during the day to pause and slow down with a meditation practice can support entrepreneurs in many ways. Benefits of meditation practice may include: the ability to self regulate and reduce stress and anxiety, improve sense of clarity and decision making, manage feelings of uncertainty, improve creativity, and even cultivate a kinder, more connected sense of community in work environments.

Start your week off with a moment just for you and join us in a supportive community for a guided practice! This session is free and open to students, community entrepreneurs and university faculty and staff. No experience necessary. Please arrive promptly to experience the most benefit from the practice.

Registration can be found here.

We recognize and honor that well-being needs are unique for everyone, and make every effort to share our programming in the most accessible way possible. If you are a UWM student looking for additional support, we want to connect you with Let’s Talk, a program providing informal consultation on general issues or questions and concerns connected to mental health. Many thanks to our friends at the Norris Health Center at UWM. For additional questions, please reach out to: nhc-help@uwm.edu

This initiative is a project in partnership with Amelia Coffaro, a licensed yoga therapist and entrepreneur with a mission to make integrative health and healing accessible to everyone. Amelia was a part of the I-Corps cohort in 2019 and more recently completed the Student Start Up Challenge at the LEC. You can learn more about her here.
