Mindfulness courses

MS-UK understands the importance of having a healthy relationship with your mental wellbeing and is now offering two mindfulness courses. These courses are designed to help you live more consciously, with evidence that it can help people living with a chronic condition, such as multiple sclerosis (MS).

What is mindfulness?

Mindfulness is considered to be a state of consciousness, whereby you are aware of your body, thoughts and emotions, living ‘mindfully’ and alive to your experiences.

This can be achieved through practice, choosing where to place your attention, the awareness to thoughts and to reframe and respond skilfully rather than reacting negatively towards them.

There is now growing medical evidence of the benefits of mindfulness in alleviating stress and anxiety, and that stress and worry can contribute to the exacerbation of MS symptoms, relapses, the progression of the condition, and perhaps even to the onset of the condition itself.

What are the benefits you can expect from mindfulness?

  • Become more relaxed
  • Sleep better
  • Being more compassionate
  • Become more aware of your body
  • Making time for experiences in day to day life
