ACSM's 2019 International Health & Fitness Summit Audio CEC: Mind Over Matter: A Simple Path to Wellness

By Sally Sherman, M.S., M.Ed., Ph.D., Visiting Assistant Professor, University of Pittsburgh, Pittsburgh, PA

The use of mindfulness and meditation is well documented to decrease stress, increase concentration, boost immunity, enhance sleep and improve happiness. In a society where we are conditioned to multi-task and maintain productivity, meditation can feel like a waste of valuable time. However, by pulling the mind into the present moment, we can feel control over our lives and master the art of non-reaction. Being present allows us to feel peace, do better work and actually experience the world around us.

Learning Objectives

1. Participants will understand the effects of mindfulness on the physical body (from head to toe).

2. Participants will experience first-hand simple meditation moments and feel how it impacts their bodies and minds.

3. Participants will learn simple, applicable ways to incorporate the practice into their daily lives and into their work with fitness students/participants.
