Regular events

Starting the week differently, with a more mindful approach to productivity and the manifold challenges that research and study inherently bring, that is the main idea behind the Mindful Mondays-project. Every Monday, from 12:00 – 12:30h (GMT, Lisbon time), we have a guided meditation for 15 min (in English), which is then followed by some minutes of silence for each one to write down some intentions for the week ahead and which can be shared with the group, if wished so.

While created as an offer for the Department of Environmental Sciences and Engineering from FCT NOVA, this group welcomes everyone interested. Currently, the group consists of PhD students, postdocs and researchers.

This project started on 30 September 2019 and has been running since then. Initiated by Antje Disterheft and Inês Cosme, both researchers at CENSE at that time, the meetings were first face-to-face at the faculty, and were adopted to an online format during the COVID19 pandemic. In February 2023, we switched to a hybrid format: in person at the Departamental Building, room 114, at NOVA School of Science and Technology, and online via zoom. Get in touch, if you would like to join!
The ideas for the CareLab were influenced by the Mindful Mondays sessions along the past years.
