Introduction to Mindfulness
Everyone is stressed. Everyone has pressures. And it is hard to slow down in this fast-paced world.
Put very simply, Mindfulness helps you to focus on the present, rather than focussing on the past. It is not about trying to clear your mind but allowing thoughts and emotions to come and go. It enables you to have mind and body in the same place, at the same time, which helps you become calm and see what is happening around you with greater clarity.
A specialised skill in mental awareness, attention and acceptance, and associated with many health benefits, Mindfulness can help with self-regulation and difficulty managing emotions and can help to improve concentration.
Mindfulness training allows practitioners to develop a deeper understanding of the mind and a more accepting and compassionate relationship to their internal and external experiences.
Welcome to this Mindfulness Course which has been available to serving Army personnel for some time, but it has now been opened up to a wider audience. Although this is an eight-week course, and it will be rolled out over eight weeks, it is designed so you can go at your own pace.
