Mindful Living Project
The Mindful Living course is an 8-week course designed to teach Mindfulness to individuals who deal with stress, depression, and anxiety in everyday life.
Why Live Mindfully?
Simply stated: We are you. We live, work, and are raising our families just like you are and we've experienced stress, depression, and anxiety in our lives the same as you.
We were sick and tired of living a life that we felt was being dictated by that judgmental voice in our head that spent 99% of the time worrying about the future and ruminating on past mistakes. It was at this point that we decided to do some research and see if there was anything out there that could help us lead a happier, less stressful life. After years of medication and trial and error, we found Mindfulness. Natural born skeptics, we reviewed the research and decided to try Mindfulness for ourselves.
Our Mindfulness programs are different. We know that one size does not fit all and it took us years to develop our programs specifically for various populations. The Mindful Living course was developed for people like us who want to reduce stress and anxiety in their lives, quiet the voice in their heads, and live and enjoy each and every moment.
Mindfulness is not a silver bullet and it will not cure a disease or empty your mind (as the common misconception goes) but it will improve your life by teaching you how to interact with your thoughts without letting them control you. We wouldn't be teaching something that we haven't tried ourselves and experienced first hand benefits in our own lives.
The 8-week course runs through various topics such as an introduction to Mindfulness (what it is and what it is not), dealing with stress, physical and emotional discomfort, Mindful communication, and reacting versus responding, as well as other topics.
