5-Week Mindfulness Course

Inspired by the success in previous years, the School of Economics is holding a 5-week Mindfulness course free and open to all students in the University.

Mindfulness is a technique for increasing the ability to focus, a tool for concentration that should therefore also help to improve your learning results in any circumstance. It has been shown to help reduce stress, anxiety, and depression, improve sleep quality and mental health in general and even improve job performance parameters (e.g. DeVibe et al. 2013, Shonin et al. 2014, Phang et al 2016, Hathaisaard et al 2022).

This 5-week course gives you some theory and motivation behind mindfulness. We will be using a recently published book designed specifically for students: Mindfulness and Wellbeing for Student Learning and the course will be led by the author Lorraine Millard along with the Mindfulness Society at the University of Kent. Whilst the course has been organised by the School of Economics, all Kent University students are able to take up the opportunity.

Each participant will be awarded 15 employability points and a certificate upon completion, but the largest benefit will be from improved wellbeing and better success in their exam performance.

Start: Every Wednesday from March 1st

Time: 11-12:30 pm

Where: Zoom
