 Mindful Tools for Stress Management, Spring 2019

Mindful Tools For Stress Management

The next workshop will begin on Feb 25th 2019! 

Feeling stressed or anxious? Come and get new ideas how to boost your wellness.  During the workshop we learn how to

  • be here and now
  • observe our thoughts, feelings and bodily sensations more clearly
  • be more self-compassionate
  • reduce stress

When  facing difficulties we many times try not to notice them. Handling stress becomes easier when we approach difficulties rather avoiding them and learn to recognize when we start to feel stressed or worried. With practice it is possible to become less reactive and more free with our responses to the stressful situation.

Mindfulness is a state of open attention on the present. It’s living here and now. Mindfulness involves nonjudgmental conscious awareness of one’s feelings, thoughts and surroundings. Our mind often wanders to the past or to the future. Mindfulness skills will help you to focus on the present moment. 

The workshop consists of five sessions. We do different kind of mindfulness practices and have short discussions. The aim is that the participants make mindfulness practices daily routines for themselves. You need to reserve 30 min for practices daily during the whole workshop.

We have five sessions on Mondays 14:00-16:00 hrs from February 25th to March 25th, class room Majakka (M140), Otakaari 1.
