What is MBSR?
MBSR is Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction
MBSR helps people learn how to take better care of themselves and live healthier, more balanced lives.
Mindfulness is a specific way of paying attention: it is about being aware of the workings of our minds and bodies on a moment by moment basis. It allows us the opportunity to see more clearly our habitual approaches to living, and to begin to make more conscious choices about how we live our lives.
MBSR has helped people with:
- Job and family stress
- Digestive disorders
- Sleep disturbances
- High blood pressure
- Anxiety, panic, grief and depression
- Heart disease
- Chronic pain
Studies have shown that we can change the way that stress impacts our lives. We can find the balance and ease that will improve the quality of our daily lives.
