The spring 2023 semester begins Monday Jan. 23, which includes a one-credit elective. Prof. Michael Boudreau, program instructor, requires a workout plan for students.
The work out plan weekly journal will publish blogs for those seeking motivation with going back to the gym and finding their center through mindfulness. The project utilizes a self-reflection model from a final project in COMM 228 Interpersonal Communication, which helps uncover stuck points and a weekly motivation video.
The project goal seeks building a platform based on a low-intensity aerobic workout soldiers used with the 10th Mountain Division. The project incorporates strategies provided by the Madison College Mastering Mindfulness Course for savoring, confidence building, before-and-after reflection and gratitude.
Boudreau supports veterans whose family’s legacy of service dates back to the Civil War.
Collaboratively, the blogs offer empowerment and affirmations with only one goal in mind—making it to the gym. Each reflection for the class project will track mental, physical and spiritual health.
The project minimum requirement is a visit to the gym twice per week.
Collectively, the project offers a starting point and a confidence boost for all who are stuck in the trap of depression a way out through enlightenment and encouragement.
