ABOUT THE WEBINAR:
It’s quite easy to form unhelpful habits like self-criticism, perfectionism or obsessively checking social media. A habit loop is a way to try and make ourselves happy by maximizing pleasure and avoiding pain. Once we’re in the loop, there are lots of triggers and cues around to fuel these unhelpful habits. Anything that brings pleasure and/or lessens pain can drive a habit loop. Mindful awareness is a kind of curiosity that can interrupt the habit loop at different points and open the opportunity for new choices. This webinar will illustrate how mindfulness practices can work to help break unhelpful habits. It will also include suggestions for starting a mindfulness practice and lead participants through 3 guided meditation practices.
- Describe how mindfulness practices work to break unhelpful habit loops.
- Identify ways to start a mindfulness practice.
- Learn 3 guided meditation practices.

ABOUT THE 4-PART SERIES:
At WellEducator we wholeheartedly believe that nurturing others begins by nurturing oneself. This Educator Wellness Series is designed for you, the educator, to take a break from what can feel like an overwhelming hustle to prepare, deliver, and support your students and focus on your own wellbeing. We also believe EVERY educator is doing the best they can, and there is always room for growth and development.
We designed this 4 Session Series to support you in tapping into your resiliency skills, increasing your self-compassion, creating self-care routines, building a practice of gratitude and appreciation and celebrating - even those small successes - to support your wellbeing. We know you are showing up for your students, that’s what you do! It’s time to take a time out just for you!
