Since Jon Kabat-Zinn created the MBSR program in 1979, there has been a immense amount of research coming out that has given us insight into how the MBSR program is helpful and how it not only works, but how it can actually change brains for the better in only 8 weeks. By training your mind to focus only on the now, you learn to let go of negative thoughts, worry less and accept things as they are.
MBSR incorporates techniques such as meditation, gentle yoga and mind-body exercises to help people cope with stress. It gives greater clarity on what is happening in their lives, improving problem-solving and heightening concentration. Individuals who have taken an MBSR course say that they feel more engaged in their work, more energised and less anxious. They sleep better and have fewer physical symptoms of stress.
We offer the hugely successful MBSR Program for Caregivers, but are thrilled to announce that we are now also offering MBSR for individuals affected by Mild Cognitive Impairment.
