Learning Well-Being for Life
Originally aired live on May 10, 2021
Education shapes us throughout our lives. It can provide us with the skills we need to learn at any age. While academic rigor is often touted in various educational programs, how often have you heard of an educational program that focuses directly on your own mind and well-being? This event will focus on the lessons learned from education as a way to enhance emotional well-being for everyone, at all stages in life. Join the Center for Healthy Minds and special guests from AtentaMente to learn takeaways and insights from two innovative programs that make well-being part of the curriculum. Speakers will share mental training and social-emotional learning techniques, supported by scientific research, to develop lifelong well-being for ourselves, our communities and the world.

The How of Well-Being

Discover new skills for your mental and emotional well-being from researchers at the University of Wisconsin–Madison’s Center for Healthy Minds. This event will focus on the Healthy Minds Framework consisting of four pillars of well-being that have been studied in the lab and have been shown to improve with training: awareness, or attentiveness to one’s environment and internal cues such as bodily sensations, thoughts and feelings; connection, or appreciation, kindness and compassion; insight, which refers to fostering curiosity and self-knowledge; and purpose, or understanding your values and motivations.
