This month Nuffield Health Fitness and Wellbeing gyms across the country are hosting free ‘Meet our Experts’ mindfulness events, providing people with free access to mindfulness training to help them manage their busy, stressful lives and to improve their own emotional wellbeing. Research has shown that practising mindfulness meditation changes the brain; helping to improve cognitive performance, emotional regulation and manage stress better.
The events take place on week commencing 21 March and are open to members and non-members. On the day you can find out what exactly mindfulness is and the ways in which it can help people to improve their emotional resilience and appreciate their surroundings. Nuffield Health experts will be on hand to deliver a mindfulness session from Mindlab, partners of Nuffield Health, who have extensive experience in delivering mindfulness training. The session will explore exercise options such as Yoga and Pilates – that can benefit both physical and emotional wellbeing, and answer any questions on how people can incorporate mindfulness into their everyday lives and the benefits of doing so.
Dr Davina Deniszczyc, Medical Executive Director for Nuffield Health said:“Living in the 21st century means we now all lead such busy lives. We work longer and harder than ever before so it’s really important we take a step back and look after our mental wellbeing. Mental wellbeing is just as vital as being physically fit and we are delighted to be able to offer mindfulness training to everyone through our events and to help them experience the benefits.”
Mindfulness training is an integrative, mind-body based approach that helps to increase self-awareness and an understanding of what we do and why. Through practice, people are better able to manage thoughts and feelings and are less likely to get caught up in them. Being in control means they are able to respond rather than react in the usual habituated way.
