MDVMA’s Membership Committee will host a workshop by Monica Jordan M.Ed., MCMBT creator of Embrace Mindfulness.
The veterinary profession is in a mental health crisis. The latest data paints a bleak and alarming picture, with stress & anxiety, depression, burnout and substance abuse demonstrating how the pressures felt by many veterinarians manifest in health risks. The stakes are too high for inaction. And mindfulness can help.
An amazing amount of scientific research suggests that mindfulness may be crucial to deal with one of the biggest health issues facing the world today: stress. Mindfulness tools will show you how to calm your mind when you are overwhelmed by intrusive thoughts, how to improve your focus, how to work with your emotions when you experience bouts of anxiety about your work, your relationships, your children, or your lack of time or purpose in life, and much more.
If you would like to be more present for yourself and others, if you would like more joy in your life, then this introductory mindfulness talk and meditation are for you.
