Mindfully Manage Your Stress
Wednesday, March 22, 1–2 pm | Overture Room, Gordon Dining & Event Center | Facilitated by Rob Sepich, UHS stress-management counselor
EASE | ERASE
Stress is not the enemy, nor is eliminating stress possible. However, there are countless ways to mindfully acknowledge feelings and then skillfully accomplish our goals. The concept of "feeling the fear and doing it anyway" applies to much of what life presents to us. In this session, we will discuss a number of mind/body approaches to build on our strengths and reduce the harmful effects of stress. We will close with a relaxation exercise that is easy to do on your own.
Anxiety is typically ranked at the top of college students' health concerns. It has been implicated in many medical conditions that bring people to their health care providers. When students learn effective self-care strategies for stress management, they reduce the burden on providers and develop skills to use beyond their time at UW-Madison.
Rob Sepich is the UHS team manager for student relations. He also works with students in the wellness service and applies mindfulness and cognitive-behavioral research to help them relax, focus, and succeed. His degrees are in psychology and counseling psychology. Rob is a lover of life who enjoys learning from students as much as teaching them.
