Most of us often feel overloaded, stressed and feel under pressure. It is very easy to get into a spiral and be stuck in our usual automatic reactions (even if they’re not helpful). Mindfulness is an integrative, mind-body based approach that helps people to manage their thoughts and feelings and mental health.
Many people find mindfulness an effective approach to support their mental health recovery, or just to help reduce stress and improve their coping skills.
This 2 hour workshop will explain what mindfulness is, and how mindfulness techniques can help improve overall wellbeing by reducing stressful feelings and emotions. Practical exercises will help students apply mindfulness skills.
By the end of the workshop, students will be able to:
- Explain and describe what mindfulness is.
- Name some therapeutic techniques that use mindfulness.
- Assess their own current level of mindfulness.
- Practise a variety of mindfulness techniques.
