As a researcher who just spent the last year evaluating Calmer Choice’s online programming, I’m excited to tell you all about what I learned.
Our odyssey into mindfulness research continues…by this time we realize that there is no end to the research, the questions are going to be continuous. Their importance in the field, and for Calmer Choice, are becoming an integral part of who we are in the world of mindfulness education, and this next study with MIT is nothing less than remarkable.
In part 3 of our Research Series, we dive deeper into the data of our programs and long-term results on participants.
So, you are probably all anxious to hear about those brain changes we alluded to in Part 1 of our story but…we’re not quite there yet. The seeds of our research journey really begin back in 1987!
We’d like to tell you a story. No, not the one about Calmer Choice and its humble beginnings. But the one about the amazing, measurable, positive changes occurring in children.
Here's Part One.
I took an 8-week class at Calmer Choice last Fall. I am grateful because I learned many things about the practice of mindfulness and I also learned a lot about myself.
The pressure to make the holiday season merry and bright can also exacerbate depression and other mental illnesses. In this blog post, Calmer Choice Board Member Christina Bologna provides her tips on how to stay mindful during the holiday season.
In a time when almost everyone seems to be experiencing new or worsened anxiety, it is worth looking a little deeper as to what this cause might really be.
Whether it's mindfulness or some other avenue into our mind, a little sanctuary every day is absolutely essential to our mental health and well-being.
“Back to school” may be looking very different for our kids and teachers this year. Mindfulness can help you bring a sense of perspective to the situation.
