Be Mindful is an online course for anyone over 16 for reducing stress, depression and anxiety. It guides you through the elements of mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MBCT).
The course is all about practicing mindfulness, which is a mind-body approach to life that helps us relate differently to experiences. Mindfulness involves paying attention to our thoughts and feelings in a way that increases our ability to manage difficult situations and make wise choices.
You'll complete 10 sessions lasting 30 minutes each that consist of video, meditation audio and interactive exercises. There are also mindfulness assignments to carry out in daily life and tools to measure any reductions in stress, depression and anxiety. You can complete the course in as little as four weeks, but you can take longer if you prefer – there is no time limit for completion.
