Drop-in Session: Try This On For Size: Short Meditations for Well-Being

Blair Carleton

About this Event

Our minds plan, create, worry, and plot. We are each blessed with a negativity bias that helps us to survive but not necessarily thrive. It may feel as if the brain has a design flaw in how it captures and holds on to all the negative thoughts, yet it lets positive experiences flow through. One of the most important things we can do is figure out how to balance this bias and turn our minds into an ally towards well-being.

This drop-in will involve several short meditations, each designed to help support well-being no matter where we find ourselves at the moment. We will practice and have brief interactive discussions to see what worked and what didn’t, as meditation is not one size fits all. This session will provide tools to keep in your back pocket for times of stress or hardship as well as to refuel and increase your happiness meter.
