Mindfulness For Wellbeing
6 week introductory course materials
Pre Course Questionairre
As part of my duty of care I have a short form I’d like you to fill in. It should only take a few minutes.
It helps me understand where people are at and helps me make sure that this is the right time for everyone to practice mindfulness.
Please complete the form before we next meet.
This week's meditations
The length of the meditations will increase as the course goes on, stopping at around 20 minutes with optional 30 minute sessions.

The next meditation is something you can use 'as well as' the meditations above. It is less about training our minds to be more mindful, and more about improving our ability to be more compassionate to ourselves and deal with difficult situations.

This week's mindful activity
As well as brushing your teeth mindfully this week, try to find another mundane activity which you can engage with mindfully. But most importantly this week, practice being kind to yourself. See if you can notice when you're not being kind to yourself and change the script! look after your self care as a matter of urgency!
