Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction Program to begin April 4
The Wellness Center is sponsoring a new Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction Program. The eight-week program starts on Tuesday, April 4.
Here are some of the benefits that can be gained from participation in this program:
- Coping skills to improve your ability to handle stressful situations
- Improved self-esteem and renewed enthusiasm for life
- Development of the potential to be fully present in each moment
Mindfulness is a way of learning to relate directly to whatever is happening in your life, when it is happening. It is the cultivation of nonjudgmental awareness in day-to-day life while developing the potential to experience each moment, no matter how difficult or intense, with serenity and clarity.
Mindfulness practice consists of paying close attention to the mind and body specifically through awareness of thoughts, sensations and emotions. This awareness helps one recognize habitual patterns and reactions to stress, pain and illness while learning to develop new ways of becoming more present and living a more meaningful life.
