We say that seeing is believing, but our perceptions can be distorted, and our thoughts can further amplify these distortions. Research from the Center for Well-Being at Washington University has shown that the meaning and perspective we develop in our lives has a profound impact on our physical and mental health. In this Lunch and Learn, Dr. Nigel Lester will explore the power of developing healthy perspectives and provide a practical guide to perceiving, reframing, and transcending problems to bring creative solutions to our everyday lives.
“What do you do?” Julie Geeting, LPC, NCC, examines this simple question as a catalyst to help individuals experience greater well-being and purpose in their lives. Julie will also look at the connection between personal and professional development, incorporating research on how individuals can develop more meaning through work.
This seminar will focus on the importance of self-care and how it applies to helping individuals let go of stress. Kevin Cloninger, PhD, PCC, will explore the neuroscience, philosophy, and evolutionary history of the mind-body relationship and delve into the nature and science of thought and the psychophysiology of stress. In conjunction, he will provide tools that can help individuals work on letting go of stress in their professional and personal lives, including physical exercises, relaxation techniques, and reflective exercises.
Depression, anxiety, and many other mental illnesses are on the rise in the twenty-first century. We sat down with Dr. Nigel Lester, Director of Mental Health at PALM, to ask for his insight.
In our increasingly complex society, we need to optimize our brain fitness to manage the inundation of choices, information, and stimulation that we are exposed to today. The benefits of meditation, mindfulness, and contemplation on mood, attention, compassion, and stress management, as well as the benefits achieved through the development of neuroplasticity, emotional intelligence, and character development are becoming more and more evident. A well-being approach that incorporates these practices will allow us to thrive in the twenty-first century.
Where do our thoughts come from? How we can use this awareness to improve our overall health and well-being? Join Julie Geeting for a repeat of her July seminar on the process of thought, including the three steps of thought, our outlook, and the pathways in our brain.
