Interchange Outer East invite you to join our FREE Mindfulness For Carers Training – a series of sessions focusing on learning to be mindful in our day to day life.

The art of looking after oneself is often overlooked by carers. There are simple things that can be done in a short space of time that can help calm your racing mind and help you get through the day in a more peaceful, less stressful way using a strategy called mindfulness. Mindfulness involves learning to pay attention to the present moment, instead of worrying about the future or dwelling in the past. It focuses on developing an attitude of friendliness toward yourself, as opposed to criticism or judgement.

There are many benefits to mindfulness with research showing that mindfulness can:

  • Reduce levels of stress, anxiety and depressive symptoms
  • Improve overall wellbeing
  • Improvements in relationships
  • Increase resilience and peace of mind
  • Enhance cognitive performance e.g. concentration, memory and processing speed

This training will run over three 2 hour sessions, either our evening sessions in October in the Outer East, or our daytime sessions in November in the Inner East.
