How are you making time to just have fun?!

This #funfriday do something for no other reason than YOU enjoy it.

Having trouble knowing where to start?
What’s something that you loved doing when you were younger?
What is something that absorbs your attention and does not leave space to let you be distracted by your “to-do” list?
What is one thing you’ve always wanted to try but never made the time for before?

We would love to see how you have FUN! Comment below or show us your post with #stanfordbiosci for your chance to win one of today’s $15 gift card giveaways.

Gratitude has shown to be associated with greater happiness. It can help you to feel more positive emotions, be more resilient, and nurture your social relationships.

How will you choose to express gratitude this #thankfulthursday?

Here are some ideas:
-Start a gratitude jar or journal to write down things that make you grateful. (It can be a great resource to pick up when you’re feeling a little low).
-Write a physical or virtual thank-you note to someone you appreciate **totally works if that someone is you!
-Have an attitude of gratitude! Simply make a conscious effort to express thanks to others as a part of your daily routine.

How will you choose to express gratitude today? Share a comment or show us your post with #stanfordbiosci for your chance to win one of today’s $15 gift card giveaways.

How can you be more present this #mindfulmonday?

Practicing mindfulness allows us to be more curious, forgiving, grateful and connected. It helps us to stress less and accept things as they come and go.

Whether mindfulness is a new practice for you or you have an established practice, be creative in creating more present moment awareness in your day.
Join a led meditation session. There are multiple options available at
https://vaden.stanford.edu/virtualwellbeing

Take a moment to focus on your breath. There are great resources here: https://student.korumindfulness.org/resources.html

Pause between actions in your day to notice the sensations around you.

How, where and/or why do you practice mindfulness? Let
us know about your #mindfulmonday below in the comments or post with #stanfordbiosci to win a $15 gift card. Four winners will be randomly selected each day.

Don't forget to complete the survey on sexual assault and harassment at Stanford and make your voice (confidentially!) heard! See details below.

‼️Reminder‼️On April 9th, the University launched a survey on sexual assault and harassment at Stanford. This survey is an important way to assess the prevalence of sexual assault, harassment, and other forms of sexual violence at Stanford. We strongly encourage you to participate in this survey in order to better our Stanford community.

To take the survey, look for an email sent on April 9th from Provost Drell containing a unique link to access the survey. The survey is being administered by Westat – a social science research firm contracted by the Association of American Universities (AAU) - and the link will direct you to their survey site. When you complete the survey on the Westat website, no identifying information is connected to your survey responses. Your responses will be strictly confidential.
