Need some quiet time to yourself or to declutter your mind? Don’t have an hour spare? Have access to the internet?
Then join us for a new weekly meditation class, incorporating mindfulness activities, where you attend in person or tune in via streaming for the whole hour or for twenty minutes segments…and still enjoy the benefits!
This new class will incorporate:
- 20 minutes of breath work, from 11.30am to 11.50am;
- 20 minutes of mindfulness activities, from 11.50am to 12.10pm; and
- 20 minutes of a relaxing meditation, from 12.10pm to 12.30pm.
It has been designed to help carers who can’t make it to a class due to caring responsibilities, time, work or other commitments, however may like to participate and enjoy the many benefits of meditation. It is well documented that meditation and mindfulness may assist with reducing stress and anxiety, improving focus and concentration, improving sleep quality and enhancing self-awareness and more.
If you have never tried meditation and don’t know what to expect, give it a go in the privacy of your own house.
Carers who have attended meditation classes have made the following comments:
- I am much more relaxed and happy after doing something for myself. Carrying over relaxation techniques helps to decrease stress at home and unwind after crazy days.
- I am a lot calmer and therefore makes me a better carer and I sleep better as I applied the techniques learnt especially the breathing technique.
- I noticed that I can handle stress better and I feel that I am equipped with more strategies and tools to handle stress and issues that affects me. I used the tips and techniques that I have learnt from meditation and apply it at home.
