ME ClubMs. GaoThe Mindful Elite Club will promote mindfulness among students to help them be more aware of which emotions they’re experiencing, why they’re feeling them, and how to tackle them. We will learn not only about protecting our mental health, especially needed during these difficult times, but also about ourselves as we are all constantly growing and navigating through life. Studies have shown that exercising different types of mindfulness activities – including meditating, expressing gratitude, and connecting with nature – will help students to reduce their anxiety and stress levels and increase their areas of attention, memory, emotional regulation, and optimism. While the ME does stand for Mindful Elite, it is very much intentional that this is called the ME Club because the first person that I (the reader) should always prioritize taking care of and loving is ME.Mindful Monday Mornings!!
