The average human spends about 47% of waking hours thinking about things, and primarily things that could go wrong according to a study published by Harvard University. Spending nearly half of our lives worrying about what can go wrong may be extremely common, but it has negative affects to our well being, happiness, and ability to enjoy the moment.
Mindfulness is the concept of living in the present, without those distracting thoughts, and without worrying about the future, except in cases where it is actually helpful to do so. Mindfulness is also ancient, it’s been practiced for thousands of years in Buddhism and was brought to the west by Jon Kabat-Zinn in the 1970s. Today, mindfulness is a practice used by psychologists, doctors, and therapists, to reduce stress, anxiety, and depression.
This course will teach you to master mindfulness so you can begin integrating mindful practices into your daily life, to reduce stress, to increase happiness, and to ensure that you’re living every day to its fullest. Living in the moment has proven health benefits, and not only helps you to live a better life, but also helps you to live a more productive one. Mindfulness aids concentration, can improve sleep, and increase memory retention, not just because you’re paying attention when you’re mindful, but also because of reduced stress.
Mindfulness is not only an ancient practice; it’s also medically accepted as having results. An ICM survey of 250 general practitioners in the UK showed the following:
72% of GP’s think patients would benefit from mindfulness
66% of GP’s would support a public information campaign on mindfulness
64% of GP’s expressed interest in learning mindfulness skills themselves
