Mindful Moments Series Part 1: 4 Mindful Moments
Gardiner Centre cares about the well-being of our clients and wishes to help you and your family cope more effectively during this crisis.
Starting tomorrow (Wednesday, March 25) Gardiner Center will be offering 15-minute guided mindfulness sessions each Wednesday for the next four weeks. These free sessions will be broadcast over Facebook live and led by Gardiner Centre instructor, and Positive Psychology coach, Jennifer Kelly.
During this tumultuous period, maintaining social distancing is not the only challenge we face – it’s also a challenge to distance ourselves from anxiety and stress.
Unpredictability, changes in behavioural norms and loss of routine can lead to significant inner turmoil. Although we cannot control what is happening, our own thoughts and behaviours are still very much rooted in our control. Mindfulness has been proven in Positive Psychology research to be an effective strategy to manage anxious thoughts and cultivate positive behaviours.
These weekly mindfulness sessions will offer you and your family a reprieve from daily stressors and will help you manage anxiety through breathing, visualization, and meditation.
See you tomorrow!
