Mindfulness
Mindfulness refers to cultivation of present moment awareness of what is going on within and around you, without judgement. MBSR is a model for teaching mindfulness that has been used in health and therapeutic contexts for over 30 years, including by the NHS. Mindfulness is increasingly being taught in organisations, business schools and in primary schools to children. Benefits of mindfulness practice include:

  • Enhanced cognitive skills: concentration, memory, creative thinking, openness, flexibility
  • Enhanced psychological skills: emotional intelligence, coping with stress, communication and interpersonal relationships, self-confidence
  • Improved health and wellbeing: stress reduction, illness prevention, improved sleep quality, emotional resilience
