We all know that exercise, healthy eating, sleep and socializing are important when it comes to vitality, but so is stress. Ageing comes with the necessary challenges. And now with the prevailing corona virus even more so. Do older people benefit from mindfulness techniques to deal with stress? Can it make them more resilient?
Mindfulness course and research
These questions prompted Berit Lewis to research the resilience of older people and to teach them coping strategies when it comes to stress. Would you like to learn more about mindfulness and dealing with stress? This is possible via the free course ‘Thriving life’ that Berit offers in the safety of your own home (online) for a small group. The course will be based on Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction, the gold standard of mindfulness courses.
Time frame: eight Wednesdays from 10.00-11.30, as of 17 March 2021
Experience: not necessary, but some digital skills (online course via Zoom)
The course and research is in collaboration with Leyden Academy and is part of the Master Vitality and Ageing at Leiden University.
