Mindfulness for Young People

This course is for students aged between 17 and 25 years old.


What is Mindfulness?

Mindfulness is paying attention to the present moment, without getting stuck in the past or worrying about the future. This can really change the way you manage and react to stressful situations, giving you a valuable tool to stay mentally healthy, and an ever-expanding body of evidence shows that it really works.

It can be easy to rush through life without stopping to notice much. Paying more attention to the present moment – to your own thoughts and feelings, and to the world around you – can improve your mental wellbeing. Some people call this awareness, ‘mindfulness,’ and you can take steps to develop it in your own life. Good mental wellbeing means feeling good about life and yourself and being able to get on with life in the way you want.

What can I expect from the Mindfulness Group?

An opportunity to practice short guided mindful relaxation exercises.
