Mindfulness courses run over eight weeks by Debbie Horney of Remember Mindfulness have just come to an end in Isfield and Hassocks.
And Debbie is pleased that people attending her courses say that, in this difficult and challenging year, they have learned new ways to slow down, diffuse stressful situations, calm anxiety, reduce stress, negative thinking, and pain.
Participants, who were aged between 20 and 62, also say they have become kinder to themselves and are more appreciative of their environment, particularly time spent walking in nature.
One, a married working mother of young children told her: “I can certainly say I feel the benefits of attending the course.” She, like many, found working at home, and home schooling, very stressful.
Debbie is planning to run her next courses in May and is taking bookings now via her website.
She is not teaching between January and April due to the anticipated rise in Covid-19 rates in the New Year.
But she will be running free monthly wellbeing walks in the Uckfield area. They will be held in line with ongoing Government guidelines and the next will start in Little Horsted, taking place on Thursday, December 17, between 10.30-noon.
Debbie says the walks are easy and for anyone interested in mindfulness, and in connecting with other like-minded people.
She adds: “The aim is to connect local people to reduce loneliness during this ongoing pandemic.”
