Mindfulness for Diabetes
Develop mindfulness skills to better cope with stress and diabetes
Mindfulness has been shown to help with reducing stress, regulating emotions and coping with anxious states and low moods. Research has also shown that a regular mindfulness practice is associated with reduced blood pressure, reduced insulin resistance and a lower HbA1C.
As a complement to your regular medical care, developing a mindfulness practice can effectively help you cope with the stress of living with diabetes, foster greater self-compassion, and allow for an overall increase in mental and physical wellbeing.
Who Should Attend
Individuals with diabetes, whether it be Type 1, Type 2, or pre-diabetes
Timing: Eight weeks, 20 hours total
Deadline for registration is Friday, October 7 at noon (12:00 PM)
I learned that sometimes taking care of oneself is complicated: taking care has many layers, if triggers are present, past history emerges and awareness of the body goes out the window. Learning about automatic pilot is a continuous practice for me, not just in the formal practice. I feel that it is a way of life for me – a whole life perspective as is living with diabetes.Past Mindfulness for Diabetes Participant
