Mindfulness and Relaxation for Menopause taster
Events Date: 31st January 2024 | Location: Whitworth Art Gallery, Oxford Road, M15 6ER
Mindfulness and relaxation for menopause
- Understand the link between stress and menopause symptoms, and how menopause can affect mental health
- Learn what mindfulness is and how it and meditation can help
- Experience different techniques to help anxiety, and calm the body and mind
Menopause isn’t just hot flushes and weight gain. There’s a whole host of physiological and psychological symptoms, and not every woman’s experience will be the same. For many, the physiological symptoms can be difficult to cope with, while others see a deterioration in their mental health with increased levels of anxiety, or a drop in mood or confidence. It doesn’t help that this time of life can often be accompanied by additional life stresses, such as caring for elderly parents, divorce or teenage children.
This session will give you a greater understanding of the importance of managing stress at this time of life, and give you a chance to experience some tools proven to help people manage this transition, and improve mental wellbeing. Whether you want to calm the anxiety and manage stress, or develop a different relationship with your physical symptoms, this workshop is for you. Come prepared to participate in the meditation and relaxation practices.
Next taster will be held at the Whitworth Art Gallery, Oxford Road, Manchester M15 6ER on 31st January 11am – 1pm (including break and networking) in partnership with Age Friendly Whitworth. Book your place here
We can also deliver this 90 minute training directly to your community group or workplace in person or via Teams/Zoom.
