Mindful Reading: Reduce Procrastination and Increase Confidence

In partnership with Academic Success, Office of Student Life

This is part 1 of a 2 part workshop series where we will use evidence-based learning strategies and mindfulness practices to help you settle and focus your mind for university-level reading.  

During this first workshop, you will join a learning strategist from Academic Success and Dan D'Agostino, a librarian at Robarts and a certified teacher of Compassion Cultivation Training, to discuss and practice strategies to reduce procrastination and increase confidence when reading. Topics covered during this session will include: 

  • Identifying "thinking traps" related to reading 
  • Recognizing and understanding mind-wandering  
  • Building confidence as a reader  

This session will include meditative practices, sharing of learning strategies, open discussion, and opportunities to apply and practice mindful reading skills.
