Whether you are new to Clark, or have been here for a few years now, you should be aware of the vast amount of resources that are available to you. The resources that Clark provides are for students to take full advantage of, and most of them are free and available as your time allows. One office available to students as well as the community is the Career Center. Many of you may be aware of the invaluable resources and tools that are available in that office, whether that be reviewing your resume, aptitude tests to discover a career path, assisting in building a cover letter, or holding mock interviews. Those are still only a few of the offerings they provide. Throughout the year, Career Services provides training and workshops for future career growth and academic success. However, they also provide tips and tools for personal growth. These such workshops can be essential for your success at Clark College and beyond.
One upcoming workshop is Mindfulness for Stress Management. In case you are unaware of what the term Mindfulness refers to, it is focusing on the present, and looking at your emotions or feelings from a distance without seeing them as positive or negative. The idea of being able to navigate your emotions in times of great amounts of stress can be critical when attending school. This workshop will be held on Tuesday, June 6th from 11:00a – 11:50a in GHL 213. No registration is required to attend.
For a complete list of workshops, you may find them here.
If you would like to dive deeper into how Mindfulness will help you to be successful, Clark also offers classes through their Economic and Community Development programs. The classes are for beginners as well as those who would like to deepen their knowledge and practice.
Additionally, Clark is fortunate to have a Mindfulness club. Meeting times may very. For more information, contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
There is no denying that life gets hectic and stressful, and many times, we forget to take care of ourselves. Hopefully, these opportunities to practice mindfulness will be either a starting point for you or a way to continue the process of self care.
