Suitable for: All What does this mean?
Grounded in science, mindfulness is a way of simply ‘being in the moment’ – fully present and focused on what is actually happening right now.
This enhanced state of awareness then becomes the springboard for more effective, healthier ways of being, working and relating.
Mindfulness is a natural state that can be developed through practice and is an effective tool when exploring ways to enhance performance, resilience and wellbeing during periods of high demand, change and uncertainty.
It’s a highly effective way to improve performance using evidence-based approaches to optimise performance, time management and stress reduction. It can deal with the external causes of stress, such as heavy workloads and tight deadlines and also develop creativity, high performance and wellbeing in the workplace.
This course will enable you to:
- Understand the idea of mindfulness and related concepts
