Here’s our top ten reasons why we think you should sign up today:
- It’s a great way of relieving stress. Sound like a bold claim? Numerous scientific studies have shown that practicing Mindfulness Meditation lead to reduced levels of the stress hormone Cortisol.
- It can help improve memory – scientists at the University of California found that Mindfulness improves the way our brains function.
- It helps us to enjoy music better – another study (yes there have been lots!) found that people who practiced Mindfulness respond more positively to music. Time to dig out those old albums and start dancing.
- It’s a great way of meeting other Carers – some of the Carers who have attended previous courses have made friends for life.
- It improves sleep, ensuring you can get a good night’s rest.
- It improves physical health – it reduces blood pressure, vital for keeping us fit and healthy.
- It has been proven to be effective against depression and anxiety, relieving symptoms, improving mood levels, and reducing the possibility of a relapse.
- It enables us to worry less, by encouraging us to focus on the here and now, and not what will happen tomorrow.
- It helps us to focus on the good things in life, and appreciate the positive things around us. Studies have also shown that people who practice Mindfulness are more likely to do something nice for other people.
- It’s a great way of getting a break from your caring role and take some time out for yourself.
