Take control of your stress with mindfulness programs from Practical Wellbeing
Mindfulness is a very powerful resource that will enable you to gain control of your stress. Our programs will help you learn how to develop a capacity for mindfulness.
This program is modeled on the world renowned stress reduction clinic at the University of Massachusetts that was started by Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn in 1979 with the development of the educational program Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR).
This program is for individuals who want to acquire a capacity for mindfulness as a coping resource to handle stress whether it is a result of work challenges, health challenges, and really any other circumstance that is leading to excess stress. This is a 24 hour program offered over 9 class sessions.
People participate in Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction programs to address stress and health concerns. Some of these include:
- Stress on the job
- Family and relationship stress
- Chronic pain
- Anxiety and panic
- GI Distress
- Sleep disturbances
- High blood pressure
- Substance Abuse
The purpose of this 2 hour session is to show how mindfulness can be used to help individuals get control of the stress in their lives.
There will also be a review of the MBSR program outlining content and objectives.
As a participant, you will receive:
- Guided instruction in 3 mindfulness practices
- Suggestions for starting a mindfulness practice
- List of resources for learning more about mindfulness and stress
- Suggestions for integrating mindfulness into their daily lives
This series is ideal for people with limited time, or as a comprehensive introduction to the longer, 8 week Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) program.
Each session will offer practical information, guidance, and hands on experiences of mindfulness. There is opportunity for individual attention and support as the class size is small (not more than 12).
The research shows that the practice of mindfulness provides numerous benefits including:
- Improved wellbeing
- Greater sense of control in life
- Ease of body and mind
- Greater personal balance and insight into your challenges
One-on-one guidance enables you to learn about mindfulness on an individual basis. The content of each session will be tailored to your needs and will be based on the Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction program.
