Texas Library Association Conference: Relaxation Station

You can get a sense of the way the world is going by browsing the sessions list at the Texas Library Association Conference. Here are a few I attended:

 "A Guide to Grace-Filled Political Conversations"
"Fighting the Good Fight Against Fake News in a Post-Truth Society"
"Libraries on the Move: A Panel on Mobile Outreach"
"Empowering Students with Empathy & Social Responsibility"

There were also several sessions on mindfulness, self-compassion and self-care, yoga, and tai chi, as well as the popular Relaxation Station at the library conference this year.






Because I will always be a librarian at heart, here are some of the resources I brought away from the sessions. Perhaps you might need a bunny bookmark now and then, too.

  1. I don't think I'll use the bunny bookmark, but I will bookmark the articles as I am beginning to develop a morning routine each day and be mindful as I start each day.

  7. We could all use a "Relaxation Station" now and then; brilliant idea! ☺ But, isn't "Grace-filled Political Conversations" a bit of an oxymoron? Sure seems like it, at times. ;) Have a great rest of the week!

    1. Yes, an oxymoron, but we sure do need these, don't we?

  8. I love that relaxation station! They should be built in at every conference, for sure, but also at every place of employment!
