Workshop summary
An opportunity to find out more information about mindfulness and to try it out for yourself. We work in a busy environment and live fast –paced lives and which can result in us feeling stressed and overhelmed as a result, mindfulness is an anti-dote for this. Clinical studies have documented both physical and mental benefits of mindfulness in different patient categories as well as in healthy adults and children. It is a great tool to have to enhance your health and well-being.

Aims and Objectives
1. Information about:
• What is mindfulness
• History of its development

2. Opportunity to experience some mindfulness practices
3. Examples of ways to introduce mindfulness in everyday life.
