Mindfulness is paying attention, deliberately and non-judgmentally to each moment of your life. Mindfulness practices can help us to increase our ability to regulate emotions, decrease stress, anxiety, and depression. It can also help us to focus our attention, as well as to observe our thoughts and feelings without judgment.
Here is an easy exercise that promotes mindfulness and allows you to take a moment for yourself to be present each day:
Mindful walking: Whether it’s just getting up from your desk and going to the printer or going for an hour walk with your dog, here’s what you can do to bridge the gap between everyday motions and tasks.
- Pay attention to the ground underneath your feet.
- The shifting of your weight & pace.
- The air around you.
- Try to slow down, center yourself in the present moment, and walk with confidence.
Remind yourself to be in the moment taking each step as it comes, accepting each moment, and paying attention.
“Hispanic heritage holds an indelible place in the heart and soul of our Nation, and National Hispanic Heritage Month reminds us that the American identity is a fabric of diverse traditions and stories woven together.”
These opening lines from the White House’s Hispanic Heritage Month 2022 Proclamation, issued on September 14, 2022, set the tone nicely for a celebratory month at the University. Hispanic Heritage Month will be celebrated with events, speakers, and educational opportunities now through October 15, 2022.

Different departments and schools from across campus come together to promote the importance of mental and emotional well-being.
There will be interactive booths, music, food, and raffle prizes. Post’s Fresh Check Day is sponsored by the Jordan Porco Foundation, the Counseling Center, and Campus Life.
Over the next several days, members of our Eagles community will be celebrating Rosh Hashanah, which begins at sunset on Sunday, September 25, and concludes at nightfall on Tuesday, September 27.
What Is Rosh Hashanah?
Rosh Hashanah, which means “head of the year,” is the Jewish New Year. It is one of the most important holidays for Jewish people around the world. It is the first of the High Holidays or Yamim Noraim (“Days of Awe”) that are celebrated ten days before Yom Kippur. Rosh Hashanah is observed on the first two days of Tishrei, the first month of the Jewish year.
We want to feature our main campus students in upcoming marketing initiatives, and you could be a part of it! Stop by The Eagle’s Nest on Monday, September 26th from 12:30-4:30 PM where photographers will be ready to capture your photo.
Join us to show off your best pose and Post pride. Come dressed in what you feel most comfortable, but avoid attire with logos such as athletic teams or clothing brands (Post logos are acceptable).
