Syllabus

Learn mindfulness techniques to reduce stress and improve performance

Stressed by the pace of modern life? Mindfulness might be the answer. Research shows that when you’re not deliberately paying attention to something, your brain goes into default mode causing increased anxiety and poor communication. Mindfulness can help end this unproductive behaviour. In this online course, you’ll learn how to incorporate mindfulness practices into your life, to reduce stress and improve your personal and professional life.

What will you achieve?

  • Identify the causes of stress in your life
  • Experiment with a range of mindfulness techniques
  • Develop a range of mindfulness techniques that are effective in your life
  • Evaluate the impact of a variety of mindfulness techniques
  • Reflect on your experiences in a personal mindfulness journal
  • Model a more mindful approach to work, study and life

Who is the course for?

This course is for anyone, because everyone can benefit from mindfulness. No previous experience of mindfulness is required. We will explain how mindfulness works, but above all this is a practical course. We will ask you to explore different mindfulness techniques and reflect on your experience.

This course is not designed to be therapeutic for significant health problems so if you have any concerns in this regard then it is recommended that you speak to a suitably qualified health practitioner.
