This event is recommended for: Graduate Students; Postdocs/Fellows.

Does balancing your work responsibilities, personal life, and family’s needs sometimes feel like a juggling act?  Are you struggling to maintain a healthy balance in your life while still meeting your personal, family, and work obligations?  Your family and friends may be supportive and still not understand what you do at work or why you work so many hours.  At an expense to our own wellbeing, so many of us give up our time to care for and satisfy others.  Many of us are responsible for the care of not only children, but sometimes parents or even grandparents.   How do we manage to make time for ourselves?  How do we prevent feeling negative feelings when we have to put the needs of others first?  Consider joining our drop-in discussion group this week to discuss successfully balancing work, life, and our families.  

The resiliency group provides a welcoming and confidential space to explore positive and proactive methods to build resilience and self-care skills.  Please join us on Friday, November 15th at 10:30am for a discussion with OITE Wellness Advisor, Laurie Chaikind McNulty.  Even if you can't join us for the entire hour, we encourage you to still attend.  We would rather you come late or leave early, than not attend at all.
