   MindfulnessWise with Dr. Nicola Martin

In these unprecedented & uncertain times…where COVID 19 has forever ingrained ‘social distancing’ & ‘Isolation’ in our daily lives- It is vital we use technology to stay connected, to share support & to look out for each other as best we can. More than ever, it is so important to boost ‘Well-Being & Relieve Stress!’ So, I’ve uploaded the 8 wk MBSR Handbook (http://mindfulnesswise.ie/free-resources.html) as delivered in Luísne Well-Being Centre. I hope it awakens interest & brings benefit as you explore your unique & uncharted Inner landscape…

Although, we may remain physically apart, together sharing what we can creates a sense of hope & new connections. Wishing you the best of health & well-being. Nicola
