Mindfulness & Wellbeing

Sometimes life can feel very busy. When there are a lot of things going on, it is normal to feel like you’re going through your days on auto-pilot, which can make it hard to concentrate and participate fully in what you’re doing. Without consciously making time to pause, notice, and engage with what’s meaningful and important to you, it can be hard to experience feelings or pleasure and joy which are important to our mental health.

Fortunately, learning and practicing mindfulness skills can help you feel more focused and at ease, and has been shown to help people experience greater levels of happiness and wellbeing. This course will teach you foundational mindfulness skills to help you manage normal life stresses and improve the way you feel.
