SCIoI at Brain Awareness Week – Becoming Aware Through Mindfulness
A Brain Awareness Week event organized by Scholar Minds and in collaboration with Science of Intelligence and the Berlin School of Mind and Brain
“We from Scholar Minds and in collaboration with Science of Intelligence and the Berlin School of Mind and Brain want to invite you to our online event on Thursday, 18th of March, at 5pm. We are a PhD initiative based in Berlin which focuses on mental health during the doctorate. Our mission is to help other PhD students to achieve a better mental health and work-life balance.
Pursuing a doctorate is an exceptional time with great opportunities like investigating a phenomenon no one ever did before or discussing your research with new people from all over the world. But are you aware that this exceptional time also harbors exceptional dangers to your mental health? Are you aware that you as a PhD student are six times more likely to suffer from anxiety and depression? During our event, we want to raise your awareness on mental health struggles related to your doctorate and introduce you to a tool to become more resilient: mindfulness. Mindfulness is a simple meditation tool that can help you to increase your mental well-being.
We are happy to have the mindfulness expert Dr. Simon Guendelman with us who will present the concept and latest findings from (neuroscientific) research. On top, he will take us onto a little journey to become more aware about ourselves through mindfulness.
