Do you sometimes feel distracted at work? Do you feel pulled in too many directions simultaneously? Do you feel stress from your work life creeping into your personal time? Mindfulness is a simple practice that can help all of us reduce stress by connecting to the present moment. It requires no special equipment or prior experience and can be practiced anywhere at any time. This webinar will introduce participants to the practice of mindfulness by presenting basic science about the practice and its benefits, connecting the experience of mindfulness to library work, and by guiding participants through several beginning practices in real time.

At the end of this one-hour webinar, participants will:

  • Know what mindfulness is and understand at a basic level how the practice of mindfulness reduces stress
  • Have engaged in three beginner mindfulness practices they can continue to use on their own
  • Know some ways in which other libraries are implementing mindfulness practices with staff and users
  • Know resources they can turn to for more information about mindfulness for themselves and their users

This webinar will be of interest to: public librarians, public library staff, academic librarians, school librarians, youth services librarians, administrators, managers.
