Thriving in Action: Motivation and Perseverance

Difficulties are a normal part of life that we all experience every semester. But that doesn't mean that they are easy to deal with! In this final Thriving in Action session, we will talk about how to persevere and stay motivated when we face difficult situations. We will discuss strategies for maintaining motivation during stressful times of the semester and identify strategies for handling feedback and for learning from previous assessments.

 

Join us for Thriving in Action, a new online program at the University of Guelph. Thriving in Action will help you move from languishing to flourishing throughout your time in university. Build motivation, optimism, and resilience, and learn how to integrate those skills into your work as a student. In each workshop, you will learn and practice both wellness and learning strategies that will help you be the student you want to be.  Join us for one or all four workshops this fall and learn how to thrive. Workshops are offered online and will be delivered via Zoom. This program is offered by the Library and Student Wellness. All participants will be entered in a draw for one of 2 gift certificates valued at $25. Attend all four workshops, and your name will be entered four times.

Thriving in Action: A Strong Start

Most of us can hold on to old habits, even those that hold us back. We might try the same studying routines again and again even though we’re not getting the marks or confident exam-writing experiences that we really long for. In this workshop, we will focus on harnessing our intentionality, building new habits, letting go of non-beneficial ones, and bringing more awareness and efficiency to our studying.

SHINE Week: Beyond the Books - Mental Health Literacy Training

March 15th, 2022 2:38 PM
SHINE Week: Beyond the Books - Mental Health Literacy Training

Beyond the Books is a live online training that will first provide participants with general information on the prevalence of mental challenges and illness in our university community. It will then help participants to identify signs of troubling behaviour or distress, and give them skills to engage in a preliminary discussion to determine if referral to a professional is necessary.

Participants will also learn how and where to refer appropriately in a compassionate and effective manner. This session is designed for individuals who do not have ongoing relationships with individuals but whose roles are such that they may have one-off, in-depth conversations. Instructors are qualified from the Wellness Education Centre.

RSVP on GryphLife and you will be invited to the MS Teams link (also available under the "location").

Questions? Email mentalhealth.training@uoguelph.ca
