Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction


Recommended Posts

Dear colleagues,

I've just enrolled in a program called "Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction".  It's a two hour evening program, repeated weekly for six sessions.  It's given at the University of Rochester, Rochester, NY, where I work.  The program is only open to employees and associates of the University of Rochester and their families; so very few people in these Forums are eligible.  But you might find something similar where you work.  The program here at UR is outstanding.

It's a wonderful program that I've taken several times, and always come back to, whenever I can find it offered.  

Mindfulness is defined, roughly, as "being present in the moment".  The concept takes it's roots in Asian philosophies, particularly Buddism.  It's too difficult to really explain in a few words.  When you regard the world and your existence mindfully, it helps to enjoy every moment, even the complicated ones.

Meditating is a useful practice, that I sometimes engage in.

Mindful living also usually improves sleep quality.  I recommend it strongly.
