Well-being in Academia Workshop

Academics represent a diverse population, and both the sources of stress and their coping mechanisms, vary greatly. However, a repertoire of counterproductive cognitive strategies, habits, and lifestyle choices (or sacrifices!) represent a common underlying theme. Self-sabotaging thought processes, poor coping strategies, and little work-life balance render these high-achieving individuals susceptible to burnout and a raft of mental health issues.

In a dynamic two-day workshop, we will focus on two key aspects of well-being in academia: 

1.          Reshaping inefficient cognitive strategies
Reframe the “academic identity” and challenge toxic stereotypes.
Identify and reframe toxic self-narratives
Identify and reframe self-limiting mindsets
Learn valuable tools for increased self-compassion.

2.         Improving lifestyle habits for increased well-being and performance
Habit formation & effective coping strategies known to enhance performance and resilience to stress incl, exercise, mindfulness, socialization
