Mindfulness (M0001)

Being mindful is about focusing on what’s happening at that moment in time, which includes what you’re doing, where you are, and how you’re feeling. This might sound straightforward, but your mind can wander more easily than you might think. For example, if you're supposed to be concentrating on an important task at work, but you can't stop thinking about your weekend plans, that can be disruptive, right?

Once you understand the goal behind mindfulness, which is to be alert and focused on thoughts and sensations without judgment, you’ll realize it’s actually something you can learn to adopt in everyday life. This course looks at mindfulness techniques and will help you incorporate more awareness and balance into your life.

By the end of this course, you’ll be able to:

•Define the principles of mindfulness
•Identify how mindfulness can improve negative thinking and automatic reactions
•Describe the role of meditation in mindfulness

Why take this course?

Learning to be more mindful is something anyone can do, and it can impact lots of different aspects of your life. For example, it can help relieve stress, improve sleep, encourage creativity, and foster a more positive outlook and nonjudgmental view of the world. After all, we can’t change everything that happens in our lives, but we can change the way we look at each experience.
