Shape your Mind
Mindfulness is a human ability to be fully present, aware of where we are and what we are doing ignoring totally what is going on around us. It may seem simple, but it is not. But how can mindfulness reduce stress and lead to mental health? Mindfulness gives us the possibility to observe our own mind and body, immerse in the moment living it without judgment and STOP (Slow down, Take a breath, Observe what are you thinking and what are you feeling, Proceed considering different possibilities) facing stress. Mindfulness can help us control thoughts that lead to stress, since we are living in the present moment and not self-created thoughts and feelings in different situations. Mindfulness can be practiced anywhere at any time if somebody knows the right methods.
The project’s target group is anyone currently involved in working with young people (in any format) or express serious commitment to get involved in the future; from Hungary, Slovakia, Cyprus, Serbia, France, Greece, Spain, Portugal, and Latvia.
