Mindfulness and the Art of Stress Management

How much time do you spend second-guessing the past? Worrying about the future? And how much stress, anxiety and frustration does this cause you during the day, the week, the month, and beyond? Imagine if you could learn how to turn down the volume and intensity of this during the day, what would that mean to your happiness, satisfaction and peace-of-mind? In this hands-on course, you will practice and learn how to use powerful mindfulness strategies – backed up by decades of research – to better manage the stress you experience during the day. And in the process, enjoy more of the present instead of spending time regretting (or reliving) the past and agonizing about (or anticipating) the future.
