Incorporating Mindfulness into Student Affairs Practice
Thich Nhat Hanh once said “The present moment is filled with joy and happiness. If you are attentive, you will see it.” However, if we’re bogged down in our silos, we might miss these moments…these opportunities. How can we care for our workplace responsibilities if we can’t care for ourselves? Compassion for our colleagues, our students, and the work we do starts with compassion and caring for ourselves. Consider becoming more focused, more creative, and more connected to the work you do through the practice of mindfulness.
