Living Mindfully – Course for People With Cancer
Mindfulness involves paying full attention to the present moment, with an open, non-judgmental and compassionate attitude. When we are mindful, we are far more likely to cope with difficult emotions, sensations, and situations, enhance performance in our chosen skill or sport, and increase enjoyment of pleasant events. It is a simple concept, but challenging to apply in everyday life.
Mindfulness has been found to be beneficial in reducing stress, anxiety and depression, improving relationships, managing pain, and increasing well-being and immune response. It is best learned by participating and experiencing it first-hand.
