A great way to address our own self care is with mindfulness – a natural quality that each of us has at our fingertips, but one that is easily forgotten as we get pulled into our increasingly busy and frantic lifestyles.
The Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) course is a great place to start your mindfulness journey, giving you the opportunity to develop a personalised mindfulness practise with a small group setting over an 8 week period. It is the most widely researched and evidence-based mindfulness approach helping you to learn a number of key skills that allow you to tune into, and become aware of, your experience in the present moment. Being more aware of the here-and-now has many benefits for wellbeing: as you practice paying attention – deliberately – to your moment-to-moment experiences with a non-judging and curious attitude, your awareness grows and teaches you how to step out of ‘autopilot’ and the constant busyness of always ‘doing’. Being more mindful improves focus, increases self awareness and allows space to respond skilfully as opposed to getting caught up in reactive patterns of behaviour.
This course is designed to help you bring mindfulness into your everyday life, reduce stress, anxiety and be more in control of your thoughts and feelings. The 8 week MBSR course is highly practical, exploring techniques to help you bring mindfulness into your everyday life, and cultivating attitudes such as patience, trust, acceptance and self-compassion. There will be guided practises, take-home notes, group discussions and exercises designed to enhance personal learning.
