Fall is a busy time of year. It’s also a good time to establish new habits to help prevent the overwhelm, anxiety, and burnout than can result from trying to manage things the way you have always done and expecting different results.
Whether you are facing the demands of your job, caring for your family members or others, managing stress that accompanies transitions, facing physical or emotional challenges — or any combination of these — mindfulness can help you meet them all with greater stability and enhanced well-being.
Fall registration now open for Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR): An 8-Week Course in Mindful Living
Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) is a secular, scientific program that incorporates mindfulness to help people engage the inherent wisdom of their minds and bodies to manage stress, pain, and illness. This 8-week course, developed by Jon Kabat-Zinn, PhD at the University of Massachusetts Medical School, has benefited the lives of hundreds of thousands of people worldwide. Almost forty years of scientific research has shown that those who have completed the MBSR course report:
~Improved attention and cognition
