If you need notarization, whether it’s for preceptor applications or a vehicle title, did you know that you can get it for free at the UWS library? Just contact us at [email protected], 503-251-5752, or stop by the front desk if you’re interested!

We can also refer you to people from other departments in UWS that can provide notary services if our availability doesn’t work for you.

Seven Things Mindful People Do Differently

7 things mindful people do.Elisha Goldstein, PhD, author and mindfulness trainer, has written much on evidence-based mindfulness practices. He created an infographic, The 7 Things Mindful People Do Differently, that captures what he considers are the most important qualities and actions for a more mindful life. 

As you read it, see if you can challenge yourself to take one each day and make it your goal. Play with this! Notice if anything changes for you or your relationships as you go through your week. When you see a benefit, keep going and practice it again!

With a little daily mindfulness, we make our world a better place.

Shine On,

Ami Brimhall
