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 building new habits, letting go of non-beneficial ones, and bringing more awareness and efficiency to our studying.

The Thriving in Action workshop series 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 both wellness and learning strategies that will help you be the student you want to be. Join us for one or all five workshops 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.

From Wednesday, February 1, 2023 1:30 PM to 2:50 PM EST at Library Room 384.
