Quick Bytes: Exploring What Works for You: Self-Care and Time Management

Do you find it challenging to structure your day and sustain motivation? Have you tried hard to manage your time with calendars and other tools, and it just does not work for you? You are not alone, and you are not at fault. Time management is more about managing your energy, enabling and supporting yourself, and shifting your mindset to learn to navigate each day as it unfolds. Join other grad students to explore this different approach and how to practice it in your daily life.

Quick Bytes: Gentle Reset: Embracing New Beginnings

Our challenges do not disappear with the turn of a calendar, yet something about this time of year inspires a reset. How can we embrace the new beginning of a year while honoring the continued reality of our circumstances?

Through contemplative practice and reflective exercises we begin to see clearly where we are and identify where we want to be. We set intentions based in hope, not fear. We move away from shame toward what nourishes.

She will share her findings and some personal experiences with the impostor syndrome, and discuss some ways to overcome it, or at least make steps toward it.
