Getting in the Groove

As we make our way to or back to school, think about exploring:

  • Physical Exercise
    • Something as simple as taking a daily walk around campus could help you get back into the swing of things much quicker
  • Regular Sleep Schedule
    • The sooner you begin going to bed at a reasonable time and getting up earlier, the sooner you’ll stop singing the post-summer blues and be ready for your studies.
  • Healthy Eating
    • By making an effort to start eating healthier foods once you arrive/return, you’ll gradually find yourself feeling more alert and invested in your education.
  • Routines
    • By diving head first back into your old or new routine of attending classes and fulfilling those academic responsibilities on a regular basis, you can steadily gain all the motivation you might have lost over the summer.
  • Sense of Responsibility
    • Learning how to rely on yourself again can definitely help in reigniting your passion for living and learning.
  • Sense of Self-Gratitude
    • While getting a college education is immeasurable, there are points during the journey when you may feel overwhelmed by this path. Remember to take a moment to realize how much you truly have to be grateful for.
    • At the top of your list should be the fact you’re a college student who has the opportunity to follow your passion and pursue your dream career.

Multicultural Mindfulness Course

If you are interested in multiculturalism and/or mindfulness, this special topics course may be for you!

There are limited seats in this course, so if you would like to register or if you have questions, contact emi.lenes@ufl.edu.

The class will be experiential, interactive, and will involve meaningful contributions. Culturally diverse community role models and emerging leaders will be sharing powerful perspectives regarding the intersectionality of visible and invisible identities (e.g., race, ethnicity, sexual/affectional orientation, gender, socioeconomic status, ability, spirituality, religion, citizenship, age).

Multicultural mistakes are common and are found in helping professions, where benevolent people are intending to be of service. Mindfulness practices may help with emotional intelligence, self-regulation, awareness of oneself and others, empathy, compassion, and relationship repair.

Together, we can mindfully explore how we can be more conscious on individual and collective levels. Mindfulness can be applied personally and professionally, and can help us grow in our interpersonal and intrapersonal awareness, knowledge and skills.
