If you suffer from stress or anxiety then our new ‘Introduction to Mindfulness’ short online course could help you to slow down, savour the present moment and be more at peace with your world. Mindfulness, and meditation, has been shown to reduce stress by helping you to be more attentive to the present moment and be less judgmental, especially towards yourself. Mindfulness can even reduce physical symptoms of stress such as hypertension and susceptibility to illnesses such as colds and other ailments.
