Mindfulness – Living in the Present Moment

This four-week programme is developed based on the most established and recognised mindfulness programme in the world – Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR). MBSR was created by Dr Jon Kabat-Zinn in 1979, at the University of Massachusetts Medical School, Centre for Mindfulness. Through mindfulness practice and being in the present, individuals can experience improvement in well-being, reduces stress and better management of challenging emotions like anger, fear and anxiety. 

Research shows that mindfulness practice yields numerous benefits for working adults including burnout, positive workplace relationships, support collaboration, enhancing resilience in the face of challenges, better task performance, creativity, and adaptability to change.

Other studies targeted at the elderly have also linked mindfulness to reducing loneliness (a major risk factor for health problems in the elderly), slowing the progression of Alzheimer’s disease, and potentially extending longevity.

This course aims to help working adults and retirees to:

  • Enhance concentration and work efficiency on current tasks.
  • Cope with stressful experiences at work or home, including managing pain and illnesses.
  • Better navigate difficult emotions such as anger, fear and anxiety.
  • Improve sleep quality.
  • Release worries about the future and be in the present moment.
