Calming Your Self-critical Mind with Kindness, Good Mood Session and Mindfulness Exercises for Well-being

Breaking out of daily routines by joining the Calming Your Self-critical Mind with Kindness, Good Mood Session and Mindfulness Exercises workshops that will provide you with moments of tranquility for self-reflection and a great opportunity for connecting with your inner self.

Calming Your Self-critical Mind with Kindness: Most of us are compassionate towards our friends when they are going through difficult times. Why don’t treat yourself the same way, instead of being harsh and judgmental? Through experiential exercises and personal reflections, participants will be introduced to strategies to treat yourself with kindness and learn how to cope with difficult emotions with compassion.

Good Mood Session: Adopt a scientific approach to address your emotional distress. This session will provide you with practical skills to help you regulate your mood and manage your stress level. 

Mindfulness Relaxation: Learn how to relax yourself mindfully and see how this can be built into your daily schedule to help you manage your everyday stress more effectively.  This workshop will provide you with a new experience of serenity through mindfulness exercises.

GE Book Club 

During the Book Club sessions, students will engage in direct dialogues with the books, the hosts, and one another in a friendly and relaxed environment, the GE Gatherland. The dialogues will also go beyond GE Gatherland – you will share your thoughts on the dedicated online platform where enthusiastic discussion will continue. Your beliefs and values may be challenged. You may leave with many questions that do not have any final or definite answers. But definitely, you will learn that there is so much more to a book than just the reading of it.
