Mindful Self-Care Programs
COVID-19 is a challenging time for everyone, especially health care professionals. We are often expected to demonstrate calm leadership at all times, but without good self-care strategies it may be hard to cope adaptively with the intense work pressures that now exist.
There is growing evidence that when health professionals practice mindfulness, there are beneficial effects not just for them, but for the patients under their care (Grepmair et al, 2007; Annelrving et al, 2009).
This 6-week course is designed for those in demanding jobs who need a time friendly introduction to mindfulness. Practising 15 minute guided meditations daily and cultivating mindfulness in daily life under the guidance of an experienced mindfulness teacher allows participants to see if this is an approach that resonates.
The course can be a stepping stone to a lifelong mindfulness practice enriched by longer courses and teachings along the way.
