Participants in Common Good will strengthen relationships, boost happiness, and brighten their world! The 4-week online practice will help participants tap into their powerful skills of:
- Effective Communication
- and Self-Compassion
Studies show a strong connection between these skills and our mental and physical well-being at work and home. Each week, participants will be introduced to a research-based practice that will help deepen these skills and well-being.
All IU employees, and their spouses, are invited to join this journey! Practicing is always better together, so we've encouraged employees to invite their spouse and co-workers to register, too! Those who register will receive a pack of "Thank You" Post-It Notes, so they can start sharing gratitude right away.
How Does It Work?
Participants received an e-mail on October 16 with a link to their Personal Online Tracker. The tracker will explain each week's practice. Participants will try out the practice for a week, and then log their experiences in the tracker. During Common Good, a reminder e-mail will be sent each Monday, to help keep participants on pace with their practices. The amount of time participants choose to spend on the practice is up to them.
- Expressing gratitude
- Contemplating purpose
- Communicating mindfully
- Trying a little self-compassion
