    Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction Overview


  2. MBSR Session 1 Follow-Up

    January 16, 2012 by Bob Cole

    Mindful Awareness of Breath & Body Sensations Practice

    1. 10 minutes per day. (Can do in shorter segments.)
    2. Become aware of your feet on the Ground
    3. Pause and become aware of Breathing
    4. Feel your whole Body
    5. Resume your Activity with mindfulness

    Pause…. Ground…. Breathe…. Feel Body…. Action….

    Stop-Take a few breaths-Observe-Proceed

    You can do the practice a couple of minutes in the morning. Just pause and sense breath and feet and body. Stop and do the same before a meeting or class during the day, again at lunch, and later in the day. Soon it becomes a good habit.

    You can put mindfulness bells on the computer, phone app, or use sticky note reminder. http://www.mindfulnessdc.org/bell/index.html.

  3. Staff Advisory Team Blog

    May 6, 2010 by Lynn McDonald

    The Staff Advisory Team, has recently put efforts into starting a community blog.  The goal of this blog is to communicate to the staff community what we’re working on and also gather feedback/ideas/suggestions for how to move forward on initiatives.  Staff members are encouraged to leave comments on blog posts but we will also be adding a feedback page, where anonymous suggestions can be given to the team. This blog will link to the MIIS@Work blog so relevant posts will be cross posted.  The MIIS@Work blog will still be the primary source of important information for Faculty and Staff.

    We hope this blog helps us communicate!
