21-Day Mindfulness Challenge

21-Day Mindfulness Challenge

Are you ready to take your inner peace to the next level?

Begin 2015 by transforming your habits of stress and negativity into habits of well-being and happiness. Take the 21-Day Mindfulness Challenge and learn a skill that can increase your quality of life, transform your relationships, and support your mental and physical health.

Research shows mindfulness can impact life positively in the following ways:

  • Help with difficult mind states such as stress and anxiety
  • Increase attention and focus
  • Reduce chronic physical pain
  • Boost the immune system
  • Reduce emotional reactivity
  • Positively impact the brain*

The challenge consists of four weekly one-hour classes, daily emails, and daily practice. During each class, participants will gain an understanding of the science and practice of mindfulness and learn skills to cultivate mindfulness in their day-to-day lives.

Participants will receive a daily email through www.kindspring.org which will provide information on mindfulness and a prompt on how to incorporate a mindfulness skill into their day. Participants are expected to do daily “homework” and practice at least 10 minutes of formal meditation each day.

The weekly class will take place on Thursdays from 12 – 1 p.m. (Jan 22 & 29; Feb. 5 & 12) in Thompson 230.
