Embracing the Holidays Through Mindfulness


Contrary to common belief, one effective way to cope with the holiday season is to slow down and take a little time each day to cultivate and practice mindfulness. Research has shown that practicing mindfulness is associated with improvements in well-being, physical and mental health, relationship satisfaction, and focus. In addition, the practice of mindfulness has been shown to help reduce stress and associated negative emotions such as anxiety and sadness. In this special four-week series, we will practice meditation and learn mindfulness tips to manage stress so you can embrace a more enjoyable holiday season.

Audience: This series is open to people who have been treated for cancer and their caregivers.
