Dec 10, 2015 · On Periscope: Practicing Gratitude

Join us Monday, Dec. 14 at 3 p.m. CT via Periscope for a live discussion with Mayo Clinic’s Brent Larson, from the Dan Abraham Health Living Center, to learn about gratitude and building resiliency.

What does it mean to be grateful?

Being grateful is to acknowledge and appreciate the blessings in your life. It is one of the basic building blocks for creating resiliency in your life. According to Dr. Sood, the first step to building that resiliency is to understand what gratitude is.

GratitudeWhat does it look like to practice gratitude?

This varies depending on the individual, however, it could include keeping a gratitude journal, carrying something every day to remind yourself to be grateful, taking time to help others or performing random acts of kindness, and learning to focus on what you have instead of what you don’t have.

Being grateful is more than just thanking people for what they give you or they do for you. It includes appreciating the role of challenge and struggle and adversity in life to help you learn and grow in every aspect of your existence. It means being grateful IN your circumstances, regardless of how good or bad they are, and not just being grateful FOR times when everything is going right in your life.

What can gratitude do?

There are many positive benefits, ranging from freedom and happiness to faster healing, enhanced spirituality and expanded generosity. Research has shown that it can help people cope with stress and improve self-esteem and physical health, among other benefits.

What are the gifts you give and receive every day?

This is all a part of practicing gratitude. Adopting an active, daily practice of gratitude can work wonders in your life and in the lives of others around you. What could it hurt to give it a try? How willing are you to invest some time on a gratitude practice that promises so many positive results? The choice is yours, every day.

Nov 13, 2015 · On Periscope: Tour the Saint Marys Hospital Chapel in Visiting Mayo Clinic

ChapelPlease join us on Tuesday, Nov. 17 at 11:30 a.m. EST for an interactive tour of the Chapel on the Mayo Clinic Hospital – Saint Marys Campus via Periscope.

Since its beginning in 1889, there has been a chapel at Saint Marys Hospital. Money earned by the Sisters of St. Francis and gifts from individuals provided the basic funds for construction. Designed in the style of a basilica, the chapel is patterned after early Christian churches with two rows of granite pillars dividing the interior into a nave and two side aisles. The entire chapel structure seats more than 400 worshipers.

All are welcome to worship in Saint Marys Chapel. Masses are offered Monday through Saturday at 4:30 p.m. and Sunday at 8:30 a.m. An interdenominational service is held at 10:45 a.m. on Sunday. The services are telecast live to patient rooms on CCTV Channel 11. The chapel is always open for private prayer and reflection.

Please join the live broadcast on Nov. 17 and chime in with your questions and comments!

Sep 10, 2015 · On Periscope: Mayo Clinic Carillon in Visiting Mayo Clinic

Playing the carillonVisitors to Mayo Clinic’s downtown campus in Rochester, Minn., may have heard bells ringing during various times of the day or evening. The bells of the carillon have been ringing in Rochester since 1928 and are housed in the tower atop the Plummer Building. Mayo Clinic’s carillon is the largest in the United States, consisting of 56 bells with a range of 4.5 octaves. The largest bell weighs in at nearly four tons while the smallest bell weighs 17 pounds. The carillon is a unique instrument in that the bells do not swing, instead the bells are fixed to supporting beams and the clappers hit the sides of the bells to make the ringing sound.

An interesting piece of trivia about Mayo Clinic’s carillon: 23 of the bells were a gift from the Mayo Brothers. These 23 bells were cast in England, consecrated by the then-Archbishop of Canterbury and shipped to Rochester.

Bells of the carillonOn Friday, Sept. 11, we provided an interactive behind-the-scenes guided video tour of the Mayo Clinic carillon via Periscope. Learn more about how you can follow Mayo Clinic on Periscope to participate in future broadcasts.

Viewers learned about the carillon and watched Jeff Daehn, Mayo Clinic’s carillonneur, played this wonderful instrument.

While archived broadcasts on Periscope are only available for 24 hours, tours are posted to our Mayo Clinic YouTube channel.
