Futurelearn is offering a free online course in mindfulness.
Mindfulness is essentially about being more aware and awake in every moment of your life. It is about intentionally paying attention to each moment, being fully engaged in whatever is happening around and within you, with an attitude of friendliness and compassion.
Mindfulness can help you unhook from unproductive thought patterns and behaviours, and engage more fully with work and leisure time.
This practical six-week course explores the science, practice and philosophy of mindfulness. You will learn how to incorporate mindfulness practices into your life to reduce stress, improve mental health, and enhance your personal and professional life.
You will need access to a computer and the internet . If you don’t have these, you can use one at Inroads.
