About the Event
This workshop, targeted at young women, will introduce the skills to empower the participants to become more ‘mindful’, bringing with it all the benefits for the participant and for those with whom they come into contact with.
This event will be held on Wednesday 9 March at 4.30pm in the Visitor’s Restaurant, Parliament Buildings, Stormont.
Mindfulness can assist with focus and a range of cognitive skills. Studies have shown that those using mindfulness report lower levels of stress during multi-tasking tests and are able to concentrate longer without their attention being diverted. Even brief periods of mindfulness practice can lead to objectively measured higher cognitive skills such as improved reaction times, comprehension scores, working memory functioning and decision-making. With these benefits, Mindfulness will be understood as a powerful tool to reduce stress, improve relationships, wellbeing and increase productivity. As with all new skills, the more one practices Mindfulness, the more the precise neural pathways in the brain are reinforced where Mindfulness exacts its specific and beneficial effects.
