Date: Wednesday, September 19, 2018

Time: 5:30 pm – 8:00 pm

Topic: Snap Out of It!: How to Avoid the Pitfalls of Living on Autopilot

Speaker:  Dana Samardzich

Topic Details: Dana will introduce to us the concept of mindfulness. As defined by Jon Kabat-Zinn, who is a big contributor to mindfulness in the Western world, mindfulness is “paying attention, on purpose, in the present moment, non-judgmentally.” Mindfulness is important because our brain builds structures around what we pay attention to. So, if we spend a lot of time distracting ourselves with TV, surfing the internet, texting, or any other distraction we use, we will see that we become more distracted over time. When we learn to pay attention to the good in our lives, when we practice gratitude, or we practice loving kindness to others, we become more patient and happy. Mindfulness is the most direct approach to happiness. We don’t have to wait for happiness to come from outside of us. We learn to cultivate happiness from inside ourselves.
Dana spends her time showing women who feel overextended, frustrated, and burned out how to value themselves and to really get that THEY MATTER. From there, she teaches mindfulness skills that allow them to make better decisions that match up with their inner-most values so they live happier lives day-to-day.
