Beat the Winter blues with Mindfulness
Written by John Williamson on 12/01/2022
If you’re looking for a way of beating those January blues, spaces are still available on the Mindfulness workshops run by Cumbria County Council’s Adult Learning service.
With cold, dark days and a stretch to pay day, January can be a bit of a struggle. It can also be a month of optimism – with new resolutions and motivation to make positive changes. Adult Learning are offering a series of Mindfulness workshops online and face-to-face in centres across the county as part of their Health & Wellbeing offering.
Mindfulness is a technique based on awareness of our thoughts and surroundings which is said to help people become more self-aware, calmer and less stressed.
The upcoming online Mindfulness workshops with spaces left are:
Tues 1 Feb 10:00 – 12:00 – A Mindful Approach to Sleeping (£10, concessions available)
Tues 8 Feb 10:00 – 12:00 – A Mindful Approach to Relaxing (FREE)
Tues 22 Feb 18:00 – 20:00 – Introduction to Mindfulness (£10, concessions available)
The online workshops happen in real-time online – so you can learn from the comfort of your home. Alternatively, there are face-to-face courses in learning centres across the county, all following Covid-safe guidelines.
As wellbeing will be a priority for many in the New Year, Adult Learning offer many more courses on Health & Wellbeing – many of which are free – including resilience, positive thinking and for those who love the great outdoors – even navigation skills for the hills.
