If live is not going as you please, change it!
In 1979 Jon Kabat-Zinn set up the Mindfulness based Stress Reduction, some changes would follow, but mainly it was proven to work! One definition of Mindfulness given by him is “Mindfulness means paying attention in a particular way; on purpose, in the present moment, and non judgmentally”. And this is exactly what we will train during this training.
Mindfulness is proven to be effective in reducing the following symptoms:
- work stress and burnout
- negative thinking, ruminating
- relapse to depression
- chronic pain and the emotional effects of a serious disease
- symptoms regarding anxiety and fear
- physical symptoms which are stress and tension related
