Learn about Mindfulness at City, University of London
Have you ever noticed that when you are fully involved and present in an activity it can make you feel calm and enjoy the experience so much more? Have you also noticed that it can be really hard not to be absorbed in worrying about the future, or going over events that happened, or that you are full up of thoughts when trying to focus?
Mindfulness training can be particularly effective in helping students to learn to be more attentive, improve our focus and increase our sense of personal wellbeing. For this reason, the Student Counselling and Mental Health Service, CULSU and the Organisational Development team and the Ten Minute Mind have collaborated to offer all students and staff at the university the opportunity to learn these skills. Learn more about the 10 Minute Mind and about other university students and staff experiences of using it here.
“"I can't praise the ten minute mind enough! It strengthens my concentration and keeps me motivated during the day which is key when revising! It's been so helpful to me at University that I got in touch with Monique and Lydia and asked to make it accessible at City so hopefully others can also benefit"
- Jessika, President of the City ‘Inside Out’ society
