Jon Kabat-Zinn designed the 8-week Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) course (1979) through his work at the Stress Reduction Clinic at the University of Massachusetts and has enabled thousands of people to engage more fully in their own health and well-being. He claims that the course can be exceedingly challenging, but definitely do-able!
Mindfulness is simple to practice, yet like so many things it requires effort and discipline to work against our already automated and habitual unawareness. The great news is mindfulness is a skill that can be developed through practice, just like any other skill. For the MBSR programme to have the greatest outcomes it does rely on the individual making a strong commitment to themselves, to engage in daily mindfulness practice.
