Mindfulness for Health and Well-Being
Mindfulness is the act of paying attention to your experience with an accepting and friendly attitude. The practice of mindfulness is an effective means of enhancing and maintaining optimal health and overall well-being, and can be implemented in every aspect of daily living. In this course, we explore how the tools of mindfulness can support meaningful and lasting lifestyle changes. You will be encouraged to focus on a personal wellness goal, whether tackling a health concern, improving your fitness, changing your relationship with food, alleviating stress and anxiety, minimizing chronic pain, improving your self-care and healthy habits or exploring purpose and meaning in life. Each class will include experiential exercises, some instruction and group coaching focused on behavioral change. No previous mindfulness experience is necessary for participation in this welcoming course. Course meetings are staggered to allow time to practice new habits.
