With so many demands on our time, we can fall in the trap of being lost in constant worry, planning and striving. Ironically, these attempts at being more in control can backfire, leaving us more stressed and impatient. The skill of mindfulness is about developing non-judgmental, present moment awareness. In this talk we will explore the benefits of this practice and learn some mindfulness strategies.
- The participants will be able to articulate what mindfulness is and how it can be helpful.
- The participants will be learn and practice some mindfulness exercises.
- The participants will be prepared to begin to integrate mindfulness practices at work and home.
