Mindfulness to Resolve Stress in 10 Days
Available late 2019
Over 10 days, you will create a daily mindfulness practice and discover how doing so enables you to tackle stress, anxiety and overwhelm.
You’ll learn how to be more mindful in different areas of your thinking – because, in the end, the root of all stress is thought.
“It can be argued that stress is the number one killer in the Western world today …stress fuels some of the biggest health problems of our time, including type 2 diabetes, depression, osteoporosis, heart attacks and strokes as well as autoimmune diseases like multiple sclerosis (MS) and rheumatoid arthritis. While there isn’t a lot of evidence that stress causes cancer, it appears to increase the odds of dying from the disease.” – Dr Timothy McCall, ‘Yoga as Medicine’. (From https://yinyoga.com/the-yinside-of-breathing/)
We examine the role of routine choices and habits, because these can impact on our lives much more than we might think. The wrong choices can lead to frustration, stress, anxiety and have other negative effects on our mental and physical health.
Mindful Life courses are accessible, engaging and transformational.
The very nature of work and life in Western society is stressful. While some amount of stress is needed for our bodies to be strong and healthy, too much stress has seriously negative consequences.
The practice of mindfulness has become increasingly popular in the West over the past few years and continues to grow. Employers are recognising the benefits of mindfulness and making time available for staff to practice. Just a few minutes – time everyone can fit into their day – makes a significant contribution to stress reduction.
Over the space of 10 days, this course introduces you to mindfulness practice to resolve stress – a daily practice that could stay with you for a lifetime. While I’m still developing the course, it’s likely to be structured as follows:
Day 1: Course Introduction and ‘Be More Aware’
Day 2: ‘Be More Mindful of Stress and Anxiety’ (emergency stress reduction)
Day 3: ‘Be More Thoughtful’
Day 4: ‘Be More Present’
Day 5: ‘Be More Connected’
Day 6: ‘Be More Grounded’
Day 7: ‘Be More You’ (mindful writing and journaling)
Day 8: ‘Be More Mindful Every Day’
Day 9: ‘Be More in the Flow of Time’
Day 10: Course Close and Guided Visualisation
The completed course will be available in Autumn 2019. Too long to wait? Then follow my blog, which will include some practical mindfulness ideas, and subscribe to my newsletter for resources to develop your mindfulness practice.
