Harnessing mindfulness in managing your stress and improving your wellbeing
Modern day life and work, especially since the onset of COVID-19, can be busy and stressful. Technical skills and industry experience are vital components of career success. In conjunction with these skills, it is important to develop an outlook, strategies and tools to enable us to understand and manage our stress, and develop resilience in tackling current and future difficulties.
This webinar will introduce mindfulness as a valuable evidence-based tool that can be fitted into even a busy life, that can help you cultivate less stress, increase your well-being, and start moving you in the direction of living the life you want to lead, and being the person you want to be. You will take away mindfulness techniques that you can use straight away, even when doing everyday activities.
Mindfulness starts with noticing what you experience in any given present moment, rather than operating on auto-pilot or focusing on the past or future. It is about practising ‘being aware’ and can be helpful in enabling you to notice and understand the stream of thoughts and feelings you experience (including signs of stress). You can then learn ways of dealing with these better, by disentangling, and standing back, from these thoughts and feelings, recognising their patterns, and that they are mental events rather than fixed truths controlling your life.
