Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) is a mindfulness-based program that teaches people skills to manage the multiple stressors in their lives. Research on MBSR suggests that it can support wellbeing.
Participants attend eight weekly, two and a half hour classes and a one-day, 7 hour guided day of mindfulness practices. Each session consists of a guided sitting meditation, a form of mindful movement practice (e.g. walking meditation, basic guided mindful movement), brief discussion, and a teaching on the application of a mindfulness concept to everyday life.
Participants are expected to practice the learned mindfulness skills daily. These daily practices take a minimum of 25 minutes, with a recommendation to gradually increase the practice time to 45 minutes a day. Remember, the more you practice the easier it can be to integrate the skills learned in the course into your daily life.
