CUMBRIA County Council will be running a series of mindfulness workshops through January.
Organized by Cumbria County Council’s Adult Learning Service, the sessions will help bring about a month of optimism – with new resolutions and motivation to make positive change.
Adult Learning is offering a series of online and face-to-face mindfulness workshops at centers across the county as part of their Health and Wellness offering.
Mindfulness is a technique based on becoming aware of our thoughts and surroundings that helps people become more aware of themselves, calmer and less stressed.
According to Mind, the mental health charity, studies show that practicing mindfulness can help manage common mental health issues like depression, anxiety and feelings of stress.
The next online mindfulness workshops with spots available are:
- Tuesday 1 February 10.00am – 12.00pm – A Mindful Approach to Sleep (£10, concessions available)
- Tuesday, February 8 10:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. – A conscious approach to relaxation (free)
- Tuesday 22nd February 6.00pm – 8.00pm – Introduction to Mindfulness (£10, concessions available)
Online workshops take place online in real time and can be done from home. Alternatively, face-to-face lessons at learning centers are offered, all following Covid safety guidelines.
As wellbeing will be a priority for many in the new year, Adult Learning offers many other health and wellbeing courses – many of which are free – including resilience, positive thinking and for those who love the great outdoors – even navigation skills for hills.
