Cognitive distortions (a term from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy) are unhelpful thinking habits, developed over time, that can negatively impact your thoughts, feelings and interactions with others. Learning to identify these unhelpful thinking habits and challenge negative self-talk can help you to change your perspective and improve your outlook.
So, here’s the message and theme for this spring’s De-Stress Fest, presented by the Center for Student Wellness and Counseling Services (CSWCS) for NEOMED students:
AlterNate Your Perspective: Change Nate and Change Your Outlook
WHEN: May 6-10 from noon to 1 p.m.
WHERE: NEW Center lobby outside Watanakunakorn Auditorium.
All four aspects of foundational elements (mindset, state of being, social being and stress response) will be provided by way of therapy dogs, Reiki, chair massages, labyrinth, cooking demonstration by Chef Xavier, Nate puzzles and word searches, Nate cookie decorating, Nate laptop sticker giveaway, Nate digital painting and “Big Nate” paper dolls!
Check out Presence each day for detailed information on the events scheduled.
