Mindfulness-based Stress Reduction
Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) is a widely-used and evidence-based approach to managing stress, improving mental health, and enhancing overall well-being. This workshop is designed to provide employees with the skills and tools to effectively practice MBSR in their daily lives, both personally and professionally.
Throughout the session, we will cover both the theoretical and practical elements of MBSR, including its foundations in mindfulness meditation, cognitive-behavioral therapy, and stress physiology. We will also delve into the many ways in which MBSR can be implemented in daily life, including through formal meditation practices, mindful movement, and mindful communication.
As part of the workshop, we will also provide attendees with a toolkit to support their ongoing MBSR practice. This toolkit will include resources such as guided meditation recordings, mindful movement exercises, and strategies for integrating mindfulness into daily activities.
Finally, we will conclude the session by highlighting the key knowledge and goals that attendees will have achieved by the end of the workshop.
