Is your mind constantly being distracted by unwelcome thoughts and worries? Do you feel like it stops you from enjoying the fun bits of life? Do you wish you had better focus and could enjoy the present more?

If so, this is the course for you.

This short course is perfect for anyone looking to reduce their day-to-day worrying using the scientifically-proven technique of Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT). You will learn about how it works and complete your first five mindfulness meditations.

Mindfulness is the practice of experiencing the here and now without judgement. We focus on connecting with our experience, rather than worrying about the future, and observe our experiences for what they are, rather than labelling them as good or bad, positive or negative, but simply seeing what life gives us.

Each meditation is delivered via guided audio and takes about 10 minutes.

In addition, the course includes some additional music-based practices to help you feel positive, breathe better and wonder more.

The course is taught by Chris Worfolk, founder of the mental health charity Anxiety Leeds and author of Do More, Worry Less: Small Steps To Reduce Your Anxiety.
