I am developing a series of online courses with the aim of allowing meditation and mindfulness to resolve stress, and other negative impacts on health caused by our pressured work and life environments. Each online course will build over a 10 (introductory) or 30-day (advanced) period and includes relaxing audio sessions as well as video and written content. The first course will be ready soon (see details below).
My online courses are accessible, engaging and transformational. I’d love you to enrol.
Mindfulness to Resolve Stress in 10 Days
“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’.
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 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 to tackle stress and 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 mindulness online 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.
