New mindfulness stress-reduction courses are to start in Isfield and Hassocks in October.
They will be run by Debbie Horney of Remember Mindfulness with the Isfield course being held at the village hall on Monday mornings.
Debbie says the aim is to join together in small groups for two hours each week, for nine weeks, to learn how mindfulness can improve our well-being.
She says that at a time when the Coronavirus has changed our lives with many unable to implement new routines because we don’t know what the future holds the stress reduction course can really help with stress, anxiety and low mood.
“Uncertainty is all around us and many of us are struggling perhaps with an overactive mind, with financial fears, or with worries about our health or our children’s education.
“Some of us may be struggling with the lack of freedom to socialise with our friends and families, in way, six months ago, we took for granted.
“These are very difficult times and the winter looming is not helping but we can help ourselves by taking a little time out each day to do something kind for ourselves.
“This is so beneficial, but many of us don’t know how to do that, and if we do it, we feel guilty.
“During the mindfulness stress reduction course we learn how we can be kinder to ourselves, to accept our pains, worries, and struggles of daily life; and how to become more aware of our feelings and emotions so that we can deal with unhelpful and repetitive thoughts, attitudes and behaviours.
“This will help us live a more peaceful life with an increased overall well-being.”
Debbie says mindfulness has changed her life beyond recognition and she is passionate about sharing its many benefits. If you would like to know more please contact Debbie by email at email@example.com.
