Be Mindful

Here's the shared example

The Be Mindful course was created so that anyone, anywhere, can easily and effectively learn to practise mindfulness in daily life and enjoy the benefits.

Since 2011, the Mental Health Foundation has worked with Wellmind Media to offer Be Mindful - the only fully online Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy and Stress Reduction course.

In a healthcare setting the Be Mindful online course can be offered to patients as a mindfulness intervention for recurrent depression, offering potential cost-savings on antidepressant prescriptions.

A study with Oxford University found that, on average, there was a 58% reduction in anxiety levels, a 57% reduction in depression levels and a 40% reduction in stress levels among people who completed the course.

In a workplace setting Be Mindful can be offered to staff as mindfulness training for improved resilience and stress reduction. Companies such as General Electric (Worldwide), BT, Toshiba, and AIG are reporting excellent results from offering their staff mindfulness training as part of wellbeing initiatives.

A research study by the University of Surrey, School of Psychology evaluated the effect of the Be Mindful online course and found that those who completed the course enjoyed:

25% decrease in rumination
26% reduction of fatigue
33% improved sleep quality

No matter where you are, or whatever your lifestyle - the course gives you access to one of the best and most highly recognised online mindfulness training courses available anywhere, including training by Ed Halliwell and Tessa Watt - two of the UK's leading lights in mindfulness today.

With commitment, in as little as 4 weeks you can be practising mindfulness in daily life, bringing many potential benefits including reduced levels of stress, depression and anxiety.
