Please join us for an educational session on Managing Stress through Mindfulness and Resilience.

Practices related to increasing one’s inner awareness as a tool to enhance peace of mind have existed for centuries. You’ve probably noticed a recent surge in the popularity of one such practice, known as Mindfulness, which extensive research has shown to be an effective and versatile stress management method.  Renowned practitioner and researcher Jon Kabat-Zinn defines Mindfulness as “the awareness that emerges through paying attention on purpose, in the present moment, and nonjudgmentally to the unfolding of experience moment by moment.”  Through increasing our present-moment awareness, we can reduce the stress that results from so often being focused on worries of the future or regrets of the past. 

Mindfulness has become widely integrated into health services, schools and work organizations nationwide and beyond, boasting benefits in improving overall well-being and health as well as enhancing work productivity and workplace relationships.  The House Office of Employee Assistance (OEA) has long been integrating Mindfulness-related concepts into our supportive counseling and consultation services with employees, managers and workgroups.  While it is just one of several evidence-based methodologies used by the OEA, Mindfulness offers many practical applications to effectively address personal and professional challenges.  To learn more, contact the OEA on 202-225-2400, and Elizabeth-Burton Jones at ebj@mail.house.gov or  Alex Deitz (Alexandria_Deitz@judiciary-dem.senate.gov). 

This event is a brown bag lunch event, however we will have cookies and dessert #treatyourself.
