Mindfulness - How It Can Work For You

Who Would Benefit

For anyone wishing to understand more about Mindfulness and how it can work for you on a very practical level.

Course Description

Mindfulness has its roots in the Far East, coming from ancient Buddhist practice, but you don't have to be a Buddhist or even have any particular beliefs to practice being mindful. Mindfulness is simply about being in the present moment. After all, we spend so much of our time not being truly aware of what's happening right now, especially so in this fast-paced world that we live in. We may find that we are living in the future, with worry or fearful thoughts, or perhaps in the past, playing over events in our minds. We can all feel stressed with the pressures of work or certain aspects of our personal life.


This can leave us feeling unhappy, angry and anxious. Mindfulness gives you the chance to be free of these difficult thoughts and feelings, as you learn to be more accepting of yourself, without judgement or criticism.


The benefits of Mindfulness are far-reaching; research tells us that it can help reduce the stress in daily lives, to overcome difficult emotions and it can also help people cope with physical problems. There is a strong and growing evidence base that Mindfulness can be used as a strategy to support people master of mental health problems, which is why Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy is recommended by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence in the treatment for recurrent depression. The world of business and commerce is now looking towards Mindfulness and it’s even being taught in schools We can all benefit from living mindfully, so why not give yourself the chance to discover how it could make a difference for you.


So how do we become Mindful? It may sound much easier said than done! Mindfulness practice involves learning breathing and meditation exercises. Remember its called practice for a reason you will be trying out something new.
