So far, I’m enjoying Joyner Lucas’ ADHD album (or at least the few songs on Youtube). Maybe it’s just me, but it makes me feel proud of some of the things that the ADHD community represents.
EDUC 215 Resilience Skills for College and Beyond.
The class will be particularly helpful for first year and/or transfer students to get started out with tips and tools to make the most out of their time at UW!
In EDUC 215, students learn skills to enhance their wellbeing in college and in their life in general. Particular focus is paid to skills that help students withstand common difficulties in life, like a disagreement with a loved one, tolerating doing work you don’t want to do, and managing negative emotions in a healthy way. Skills will include but will not be limited to mindfulness, emotion regulation, distress tolerance, and interpersonal effectiveness skills. Students will also learn about research underlying stress, resilience, and related skill areas.
This 5 credit class meets for 90-minute lectures on Monday mornings with a one hour lab section on Fridays for small group activities. The class also provides I&S credits.
EDUC 215 Resilience Skills for College and Beyond allows students to work towards their best life while earning credit!
True strength and courage is not measured by physicality or ability to appear unfazed. Instead, it is measured by resilience.
Resilience is the ability to recover and continue in the face of fear. It is to accept your vulnerabilities with the willingness to try again. If you have resilience, no matter who or what stands in your way, you can and will overcome them.
That is true strength.
The beat of my heart is hollow
Because the song it sings
Is a song of sorrow.
Every day brings a new tragedy
And in my heart there lives
This endless cavity,
And this cavity needs to eat
But it’s only food is
Not roast meat,
It’s the lightless in my toes,
The spark that shines
Something everyone knows,
And this cavity needs to eat.
And it’s only food is
Not roast meat,
It is the positive thoughts in my mind.
It eats all the positive thoughts
That it can find.
And every now and then
My heart gives a flutter
Then it sings again,
And it sings the same old song.
Sometimes I’m told
It won’t sing for long,
But it’s silence I’m waiting to experience,
They said they’re proud of
And one day,
I’m not sure when.
But one day
My heart will be free again.
Want feelings of greater happiness and joy? Are you looking in the right place?
Healing isn’t just a singular act that you do all by yourself in solitude. Truly effective and transformative healing happens when we do it together.
We are in the process of creating retreats that really go deep and leave you with a sense of feeling regenerated and deeply connected to yourself and a community of folks like you.
We are curating retreats for black womxn identified, non binary and LGBTQ people to heal, experience joy and build resilience through ancestral body based practices. The promise of the retreat is to engage in both self and community care and build a supportive network for renewal and transformation.
If this speaks to you send me your email and we can make this happen together.
A volte vorrei essere capace di non metterci così tanto cuore.
Vorrei poter vivere le emozioni sul momento, senza metterci dentro più del necessario.
Vorrei poter vivere senza rimpianti.
Vorrei poter amare senza sbattere testa e cuore contro tutti i muri che incontro sul mio cammino, senza dovermi frantumare mille volte.
E poi dover incollare da capo tutti i pezzi.
