My mind is like my internet browser - 19 tabs open, three of them are frozen and I have no idea where the music is coming from. How often does this describe our daily lives, with our minds too full, engaged in too many different things to focus on what is happening right here, right now? The distractions of life are limitless, but our attention is very limited. Through mindfulness practice, we can train our brains to focus on the present moment, without judgement but rather with acceptance. This ultimately can lead to calmness and resilience, and increase our ability to cope with life.
The aim of this course is to increase your understanding of mindfulness - where it comes from, what it entails and how to practise it.
This course is made up of videos, reading, discussions and a final quiz. The course content is split into the following sections:

Really enjoyed this! A course that you feel inspired and relaxed after. Good for yourself and your patients.
This course gives you a short and sweet rundown of where mindfulness came from, what it is, what it's used for and how it works. I can recommend doing it.
