Mindfulness for Busy People
The Six Week Programme to give you the space you need to review and rebalance life.
Modern life is busy... exceptionally busy... and the pace of life isn't going to ease up any time soon...
For many of us life has become an endless, exhausting to-do list.
Juggling work (often with an energy draining commute), family commitments, fitting in exercise, trying to have a social life or at least half an hour of Netflix before bed and then getting a decent amount of sleep…..
Only to wake up again the next day to do it all over again.
Tony Crabbe, business psychologist and author of Busy says, “People are running their lives at breakneck speed and don’t have the energy or perspective to step back and see if there’s a different way of doing things.”
Mindfulness for Busy People is designed to give you the space you need to review and rebalance life.
It is YOUR opportunity to step back and identify a different way of doing things. One that works for you.
Mindfulness as a ‘buzz word’ has increased in popularity over the past decade but put very simply it means to pay attention and focus on the here and now.
Over the course of six weeks we will explore and understand the principles of mindfulness and you will apply them in a very practical way to your daily life.
In this course you will learn:
- To become more aware of your day-to-day emotions and thinking habits
- To develop strategies to help you respond to stressful and difficult situation
- To find ways to carve out more time in your daily life for the things that you want to do
- Simple meditation practices that can help you to make improvements to your life and wellbeing
The course is delivered as a series of short presentations, practical exercises and mindfulness practices.
Each session is a short, sharp, training session for your brain, to help get your mind in tip top shape to handle the stresses and strains of modern life.
Who is Mindfulness for Busy People For?
Mindfulness for Busy People is for anybody who is feeling overwhelmed with daily life and wants to find a breathing space to help them review and make changes to their life.
No previous knowledge of mindfulness or meditation is required but you do need to be open and willing to learn and experience new things.
Please note this programme is NOT suitable for anybody looking to manage anxiety, depression or chronic pain using mindfulness techniques. In these situations Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy or Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction will be much more appropriate.

"I had been feeling overwhelmed and struggling to find the right work/home balance. I found myself feeling frustrated at how I was dealing with everything.
As a result of Mindfulness for Busy People I feel calmer and more comfortable with myself. I can accept things as they are, not thinking what they could be and dealing wtih them and moving on.
I would encourage everybody thinking of signing up to do it! It provides so much more than you expect. I have enjoyed and learned so much and feel like I am empowered with how to look after myself so much better."

“I was feeling overwhelmed at work and family life was busy and set to be even busier. I was always feeling stressed and wasn’t sure what I could do to change it.
Since attending Mindfulness for Busy People I’ve been sleeping better, I’ve become happier at work and more productive. I’m able to enjoy family life much more. And when I get stressed I can cope better with it.
I have already recommended this course to so many people as it has helped with my stress at work and I no longer lie awake at night worrying about work. Instead I get a good night’s sleep. Well worth the money and the time.

“I was feeling very stressed, trying to balance a busy job, family life and parenting.
I wanted the chance to make a realistic goal to help shift the balance of life. Through the course I learned about different ways to incorporate mindfulness into my own life and I am much more aware of my own difficulties with saying no, using social media and rushing around.
This is a brilliant opportunity to take time for you, to stop and think and learn to rebalance the hectic life we all lead. Nicola is friendly, calm, approachable and knowledgeable and will guide you through the programme in a realistic way.”
