About the session
With the recent outbreak of COVID-19, we are all facing many concerns, and with that our wellbeing can be heavily impacted. So, how do we deal with our own thoughts and feelings? How do we support ourselves and others through this period? How do we create habits that stick as we settle into some kind of ‘new normal’?
The circumstances we find ourselves in is unknown territory, and our inherent fear of the unknown combined with the inability to control the situation, can result in an overwhelming sense of anxiety and helplessness. This is where Mindfulness is really helpful – when remaining positive during stressful times doesn’t seem to pan out for us, or isn’t the best approach for us, Mindfulness enables us to build distance between our thoughts and feelings, so they have less power over us.
This is about training our minds and rewiring our brains to be more effective so we can weather any storm. Developing this awareness and discipline takes practice. So, we need to develop effective habits and practices which we can integrate regularly into our everyday lives.
This online group workshop will focus on Mindfulness as well as habit training and using the laws of habit creation (hint: this is not about willpower). This is more about creating a system in your life that sticks regardless of what circumstances you find yourself in. Mindfulness is a practice that is grounded in Neuroscience. The webinar will walk you through the Science of Mindfulness, how meditation can rewire your brain, the myths of Mindfulness and how you can get started in your own time, including resources for you to take away.
About LAST Anywhere Workshops
The aim of LAST Anywhere is to create a remote-first equivalent of the feeling you get from interacting with people at a physical LAST Conference, and give opportunities to hear from people you may not otherwise have a chance to.
There will be opportunities for facilitated breakouts, giving you a chance to explore the ideas in small groups. The bite-sized sections of the session will ensure a fast pace with maximum interaction and learning.
LAST Anywhere is supported by 460degrees.
