About the Workshop

Sleep is not just a wonderful thing, it also lays the foundation for our days and is essential to our wakeful wellbeing and performance. But, sometimes it is not so easy to come by. The different stresses and challenges that life inevitably presents can impact our ability to fall asleep and the quality of our sleep. Digital distractions and other external influences can also interfere. Once our sleep becomes regularly compromised, we may start to worry and feel anxious about not sleeping, which can perpetuate a vicious cycle of trying to control it – followed by more arousal, wakefulness and worry – and less sleep.

This half-day online workshop will provide you with a better understanding of the relationship between sleep and stress, and what healthy habits you can adopt to support you in having a better quality of sleep, particularly in the midst of the current worries and anxieties that have come with the pandemic. It will introduce some key Mindfulness and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) skills to help you step out of the unhelpful patterns of habit and worry, and ultimately have better sleep.

Online Format

Given how things have unfolded with the coronavirus, we are now offering online mindfulness workshops via zoom. Our experience in running exclusively online programs is that this medium offers an opportunity to have a rich and meaningful connection with the practices and group, from the convenience and comfort of your own space. 

We hope that continuing to offer the workshops in this format will be helpful, especially as mindfulness can be a wonderful tool for coping with the stress, anxiety and uncertainty of these challenging circumstances.

Notes:

  • No previous experience of mindfulness is needed.
  • The workshop is designed for people who find themselves struggling with sleep from time to time especially during stressful periods. It aims to prevent rather than treat insomnia.
  • The workshop is not a substitute for psychotherapy.
  • The workshop will be held online via Zoom. Participants will receive the link a few days before the workshop.
