Stressed Lately? Mindfulness Can Make a Difference!

Life is full of stressful events. Mindfulness techniques can help you manage the demands of everyday life.

Are you looking for a new way to deal with stress, anxiety, pain, and difficult interactions with others? Do you want to learn how to slow down and enjoy your life? Mindfulness can make a difference! The UNC Mindfulness-based Program for Stress and Pain Management offers training in meditation and mind-body awareness that will teach you how to slow down and set priorities while remaining calm, focused and relaxed in the midst of a busy life. These practices will enhance your body's natural adaptive healing ability and will cultivate the mind's clarity and insight.

This program follows Jon Kabat-Zinn's model and is offered by the Program on Integrative Medicine at UNC (Department of Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation).
