Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction Classes Return
Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) classes return at CenterPoint Counseling this winter with their eight-week program and one-day mindfulness retreat, with orientations available the second and third week of January.
Classes are designed to help decrease stress, improve health and wellbeing and will once again be taught by Scott Sweet, LCSW, LCAC.
Classes will begin at the end of January with options to participate on Wednesdays from 3:30 to 6 p.m., Thursdays from 8:30 to 11 a.m. and Fridays from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. The all-day silent retreat will be held on March 10.
Attendance at one of the four orientation sessions this month is highly encouraged prior to signing up for the MBSR program. The sessions will be held at various times on January 10, 17, 18 and 19.
Benefits of MBSR include cultivating inner calm, maintaining perspective, bringing awareness to habits, creating a sense of spaciousness, lowering blood pressure and basal metabolic rate, noticing negative thoughts and their effects on stress, building up emotional and mental reserves for stressful times and living in the present moment.
