Sorry, this deal is OFF
If you’re feeling overwhelmed or anxious with life after Covid-19 resistrictions and/or you want to appriacte the small things then this one’s for you.
With this GrooVees deal you get an 6 week online Mindfulness course with Reni Brown a retired mental health professional, where you will learn how pace yourself back into normal life after national restrictions have ended.
When you sign up for this GrooVee deal you will first receive a phone call from Reni, so she can ask a few health questions and get to know you a little better. She will also ask you about your understanding of “mindfulness” and give a brief description of it. Once you have had the call you can start on the course which consists of one 2 hour group session a week for 6 weeks. Group sessions are on Tuesdays at 1.30pm and Friday 10am (more sessions will become available if required). On your first zoom session you will talk about mindfulness, your understanding of it and how your brain will naturally focus on the negativity around you because of our evolutional and biological responses (you wouldn’t have wanted to focus on how pretty the markings on the saber tooth tiger was when it was in front of you!), but also discuss the how to pace yourself back into the "new normal" of life. Reni will then present a very informative video explaining mindfulness and mind wondering so you get a full understanding of them both and notice it when it happens. You will then be shown and get to try an awareness exercise to test out what you have just learnt and increase your understanding of the subject. After you have tried the exercise Reni will then talk about how to apply it in your life, whether you are a busy bee or not you will discuss the opportunities there are to be mindful and present. Each session you will slowly build upon your understanding of your thoughts, thought process, gain valuable resources to use and continue to try out more awareness exercises. Reni knows that not one exercise fits everyone so she will work towards finding the right one for you and which exercises you can easily build into your life.
I wasn’t sure what to expect from my session with Reni, but I found myself interested in how our minds work and learnt just how often our minds can wander and not be present with us. As someone who has suffered with episodes of depression I can see the great value of learning how to centre your thoughts and work on your own mindfulness. This is defiantly one to try!
