Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction

Facilitator: Kerri Gladwin

Stress is part of life, but there are practical ways to handle more effectively the big and little stresses we all face.

The basis of MBSR is mindfulness, “moment-to-moment, non-judgmental awareness”. Focusing on the present heightens sensitivity to the environment and one’s reactions to it, consequently enhancing self-management and coping.  Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction also provides an outlet and strategies to deal with ruminations on the  past or worrying about the future.  Incorporating mindfulness into your daily routines counteracts the debilitating effects of stress on mind and body.  Through this program you learn skills of mindfulness meditation, enhanced body awareness and progressive muscle relaxation.  These strategies increase your ability to:

*cope with stress and the challenges of everyday life

*Deal with challenging situations with grace and composure

*Be more present in this moment which promotes greater calm

*Access your inner resources for stress management

You will benefit from this program most through daily practice of 10 -30 minutes.
