Focus Day Training

Teesside University Professional Development Seminars

2 Seminars talking and practicing the skills of mindfulness. How to apply them to academic work after reflection and understanding a little theory about why we do what we do. A special web page was created for the students to access the materials and this can be updated and also tailored to your own workshops with your own branding. What was most apparent in these seminars was the way in which we approach our work and how we get distracted, falling behind with deadlines and then reacting in unhelpful ways. Discovering that 'it is not our fault' and that we can be more assertive with ourselves in a kind and humorous way can help with developing a mindful based approach to most things.
