Wellness Wednesday w/UMBC alumna, Dr. Karolyn Babalola
Join us as we take a breather and practice mindfulness
We would like to invite you to the second of five conversations on mindfulness this spring. In these sessions you will join members of the LSAMP community across the University System of Maryland as we learn the benefits of mindfulness and engage in exercises to help us appreciate the present moment.
Each session will be led by Dr. Karolyn Babalola. Dr. Babalola is an innovator, teacher, yogini, and learner. She is currently a Senior Lead Engineer at Booz Allen Hamilton leading AI-based Natural Language Processing (NLP) technology development. She completed her M.S. and Ph.D. in Electrical and Computer Engineering at the Georgia Institute of Technology. She received her B.S. in Computer Engineering at the University of Maryland Baltimore County, where she was a Meyerhoff Scholar.
Session 2 will be focused on Actionable Affirmations
In this session we will discuss how affirmations and positive self-talk are effective techniques for updating our internal messaging and improving our overall well-being. We will practice using affirmations to target limiting beliefs by combining the technique with mindful observation.
