Learn how mindfulness can combat the pressures of modern life

This course offers a flexible way to study mindfulness, providing a comprehensive introduction to the art of mindfulness and the physical and emotional benefits to those who practise it. If you’re looking to understand more about mindfulness, and how it can combat the pressures of modern life, this online Certificate course is for you.

What is Mindfulness?

Modern life can be fast-paced, hectic and stressful, which can contribute to anxiety, depression and other mental health problems, as well as a feeling of being out of your depth or juggling too much. Mindfulness is an evidence-based practise which involves focusing the mind on being fully present in the moment, similar to meditation. It helps to combat worry, anxiety and obsessive thoughts with a calm awareness of surroundings.

How will this benefit me?

Most people can benefit from practising mindfulness, but it’s an especially good tool for those who wish to lead a calmer, more focused lifestyle, and reduce stress and anxiety issues. As well as being useful for personal benefit, this Certificate could also benefit those who wish to learn more about mindfulness in a professional capacity – those looking to become a mindfulness instructor or hoping to apply mindfulness in leadership, for example. Parents may also find the mindful parenting topic useful. The flexible online learning format of this course makes it ideal for fitting around existing commitments, allowing students to work at their own pace from any device with an internet connection. It leads to the award of a certificate to prove the achievement.
