Mindfulness-Based SEL in Action

November 2019

Note from the Editors

Welcome! November is a good month to remember that self-care is the root of resilience. When your body is cared for, your are better able to deal with emotions. What will you do to nurture your mind, body and soul this month?


If you find yourself with questions related to mindfulness or SEL we would be happy to help. Be sure to check out our upcoming learning opportunities in MLP/ MyLearningPlan for updates.


We invite you to share this newsletter with others who may benefit from all that is here. :-)

Many of us love to give advice! Or we serve in roles where people expect us to have the answers. And then there is the notion that if people would just do what I think they should do we both would be happier! The reality is research shows that giving advice rarely works, it often backfires and sometimes people actually do the opposite of what we suggest. Might we spend our time more effectively? Most of the time our presence and mindful listening is way more beneficial and goes a long way to building connection. Check out this video for a funny example of how this works!
