12PM – 12.45PM Mindfulness session

All students, PhD students, and postdocs are kindly invited to join a mindfulness session on Zoom. The session will be conducted by Saskia de Jager (psychologist ) who has ample experience as a mindfulness trainer. Mindfulness is the natural ability to give attention to whatever occurs from moment to moment: to the field of sensory perception, and parallel to this, to our inner response to it, which has a physical, an affective and a mental side. Mindfulness training allows us to optimize this natural ability for open and concentrated attention and might help reduce stress.
