About this course
Mindfulness has been gathering much attention over recent years as a tried-and-tested method of reducing stress and anxiety. By helping us to focus our attention on the present moment and not get swept up in worrying or negative thoughts about the past or future, a regular practice can help us to:
- learn to cope better with the pressures we’re under;
- recognise the thoughts and judgements we make, often subconsciously, that generate more stress;
- find balance and a sense of calm.
