To treat yourself and others in kind and caring way, that is what you learn in mindfulness and compassion trainings. Your thoughts, feelings and emotions come and go and often may take you for a ride. Your head is spinning around, you are overwhelmed by your emotions and that is something you want to deal with. You may have heard of mindfulness, read something, but it is quite new to you. In this Mindfulness for young adults you will learn and practice the basics so you can use it in your daily life.
Mindfulness for young adults
Becoming aware of all things that take place inside you
Stand still and watch, listen, taste and experience what a certain sensation does to you. This is something we are not so used to in our daily life. We just go on and on and on. In this Introduction to mindfulness training you will be practising several exercises and some theory behind it to ease down your busy mind. You will get more insight in the processes that take place inside you without the need to do something with it. You will let your thoughts, feelings and sensations be just for what they are.
- The definition of meditation is: "the act of giving your attention to only one thing". You will sit down and focus on a certain topic, sound, visual, thought or breathing. The eventual purpose of meditation is to rest in a status of observer, with a stillness of the mind.
Taking care of your mind
- You take care of your body by doing exercises, running, playing sports, and by eating healthy. You take care of your brains by taking education and growing your knowledge. But how do you take care of your mind? How do you deal with your thoughts, feelings, silence, boredom, ignorance, sadness and you?
- In this 4-weeks training you learn what to do to take care of your mind. We provide you insights in how your mind is working and you will be be practising exercises to contribute to a happy mind. A happy mind for us is not a mind without any problems or troubles. It is a mind with which you can let be all your thoughts and feelings for what they are; being at ease with your discomfort.
