Mindfulness in the Workplace

This event is related to:


Participants will be introduced to the basic principles of mindfulness and discover the multitude of ways that mindful practice can improve the specific work we do as librarians, from reference services to workplace relationships to goal-setting and much more. Two separate studies will be shared that explore stressors and challenges faced by librarians today, which in turn serve as the biggest hurdles in maintaining a mindful approach. Data will be shared on librarians’ awareness and practice of mindfulness. Ideas for dealing with stress and burnout will be discussed and participants will receive multiple suggestions and resources to gain deeper knowledge on the topic in the future.
